Orlando Pirates Boss Josef Zinnbauer called Pitso Mosimane a “top coach” as the highly-respected South African coach led Al Ahly to their ninth CAF Champions league title on Friday.
Pitso joined Al Ahly in October as he replaced Swiss manager Rene Weiler following his resignation at Dstv Premiership side Mamelodi Sundowns.
Pirates boss Zinnbauer then sent congratulatory message to the 56-year-old tactician.
“We know what he can do. He did this very well here in this league and he makes it in another league now, congratulations, said Zinnbauer, per Kickoff.
“He’s a top coach with a top work in the past and now you see in the present it’s the same. I’m happy for him, congratulations, and I know in the next year he’ll win 100 percent titles.” he added.
In addition, Al Ahly will face Al Ittihad of Alexandria on Tuesday in the semi-final of Egypt Cup.
