Africa Soccer “Pitso Mosimane Is Poor In Managing Matches” Criticized Ex-Al Ahly Defender

Al Ahly lost Bayern Munich 2-0 in the FIFA Club World Cup semi-finals on Monday. And Former Al Ahly defender and Egypt international, Mohamed Emara has criticized Pitso Mosimane for his poor in-game management.

Al Ahly surprised many following their reliable performance against European champions Bayern Munich in the Club World Cup semi-finals. The Red Devils suffered a 2-0 defeat, but their defense was generally praised after managing to stop their dangerous wingers.

However, the club’s former defender Mohamed Emara seems to have an opposite view. As he believes they could’ve been more effective upfront.

The result could have been positive for Al Ahly against Bayern Munich. Especially since the German team was exhausted from the trip to Qatar.” The former Hansa Rostock man said.

They weren’t in their best condition and won because Al Ahly was poor yesterday.

“We had a golden opportunity against Bayern Munich to win. I did not see the “real” Bayern Munich that we always see. And their stars did not give everything they had in front of Al Ahly.

“I am not with those who say that the result is satisfactory.

“Al Ahly was poor offensively. We could have won the match if we had a good attack. But we did not play with a striker.

I was astonished by the fact that Mohamed Sherif was sitting on the bench. Any clear striker would have made the difference.

“Al Ahly weren’t confident enough. And we kept the ball in some periods. But without effectiveness.

“Pitso Mosimane is poor in managing matches. So far he hasn’t left an imprint on me.

“Regardless of the tournaments that were won, so far, his imprint is not strong. I think Al Ahly fans agree with me on this matter.” He concluded.

Al Ahly will now face Copa Libertadores champions Palmeiras in the third-place encounter on Thursday, 11th February.

Meanwhile, Bayern will face CONCACAF champions Tigres UANL in the Club World Cup final later on the same day.
