Pitso Mosimane will retun to homeland with Percy Tau when Al Ahly face Mamelodi Sundowns in the CAF Champions League game this month.
Mosimane returned to Sundowns last season when his reigning African champions Al Ahly met Masandawana in the CAF Champions League quarter-final.
Despite enjoying a highly-successful spell at Chloorkop, where he won no fewer than 11 major honours, the decorated coach was met by distasteful scenes when the Ahly bus was stormed by unruly fans.
And ahead of the clash against Sundowns, Ahly coach has revealed that he is unconcerned about receiving more abuse from sections of his former club.
As The South African previously confirmed, the South African champions were drawn in Group A of the 2021/22 CAF CL showpiece. The group includes the Egyptian giants, Sundowns, and a bit oddly, the two Sudanese clubs Al Hilal and Al-Merrikh.
And the game that matters the most will be Al Ahly’s clash against Mamelodi Sundowns on Friday 25 February.
Considering how the Kagiso-born coach left the DStv Premiership champions under a dark cloud, it is easy to imagine Mosimane will compete fiercely to get one over his enemies in the Sundowns management.
“I have left a footprint. The coaches that came after me didn’t find a team in a bad condition.” He said via Soccer Laduma.
“I was honest in that team, and maybe that’s my problem – I was too honest. I don’t worry about what’s going to happen. I have got bigger things, I’ve got the World Cup to worry about than to worry about what’s going to be happening on that street in Atteridgeville. I mean really.” Mosimane concluded.
