Al Ahly head coach Pitso Mosimane has revealed that his country South Africa through its Football Association (SAFA) approached him with a ‘big offer’ to replace Molefi Ntseki at the helm of national team.

South African Football Association wanted to appoint Pitso following the sacking of Ntseki who failed to guide Bafana Bafana to the AFCON 2021 qualification.

However, the 56-year-old turned down the offer with a six-year contract in sights revealing that he reassured Al Ahly’s president Mahmoud El Khatib that he will stay amid rumors.

Finally, SAFA named Belgian coach Hugo Broos as new manager and tasked him to qualify the team for the 2022 Qatar World Cup.

“The SA national team made me a six-year offer worth a very high sum,” Mosimane told Al Ahly TV as per KingFut.

“Everyone told me that results were not going so well with Al Ahly in that period and I should take the easy route and the money from SA.

“Despite having only two years remaining in my deal with Al Ahly I chose to continue because I want to win the Champions League again and achieve more titles with the club.

“I informed [Al Ahly president Mahmoud] El-Khatib that I am staying with the team. In SA, all people wanted me there but I preferred to stay with Al Ahly as it’s a big opportunity for me.”
