Al Ahly Legend Wael Gomaa finally voiced out his frustration when he urged the club to replace their South African born coach Pitso Mosimane.
Mosimane joined the club in 2020, being the first non-Egyptian African to coach the club.
He hit the ground running when he led Al Ahly to their 9th CAF Champions league title in November 2020. In 2021, Mosimane ushered his Egyptian boys to their second CAF Champions league title under his reign and their 10th in total.
Al Ahly is currently in the semi-final stage of the CAF Champions League.

Despite all that Gomaa is unsatisfied with the team’s performance in their 1-1 draw against Raja Casablanca (23 April) and says he hopes the club’s board replaces Mosimane when the CAF campaign has concluded.
According to KingFut Gomaa heavily criticized Mosimane saying: “I’d like to congratulate Al Ahly for qualifying, they earned it at the first leg, but tonight, the performance was not convincing,”
“Mosimane’s management of the game was poor. Al Ahly should have attacked more; they have higher quality players than Raja.
“Pitso just thought about qualifying, but Al Ahly could have played better football. Mosimane took a massive risk and it could have backfired, he’s lucky to coach Al Ahly.
“Hussain El-Shahat was the best player on the pitch and he took him out. Al Ahly could have conceded more goals tonight, we were lucky.
“I also didn’t see a single Al Ahly player improve during Mosimane’s time with the club. I don’t wish defeat for Al Ahly so that Mosimane leaves, but Al Ahly can win with better performance, for sure.
“Once this Champions League campaign is over, Al Ahly can look for another manager. I am sure the team can improve with another coach. The club board is happy with Pitso because he’s winning, but we are not happy because he makes Al Ahly look like a small club.”
