South African coach Pitso Mosimane has agreed to terms with Saudi Arabian club Abha to take charge of the team.
According to Egyptian online outlet Kingfut, who have quoted Saudi publication Arriyadiyah as the main source, Mosimane will start his technical duties and oversee the training of the team on Saturday.
Further reports added that Abha’s management is expected to hold a meeting with Mosimane to discuss the team’s needs, including the recruitment of local and foreign players to reinforce the squad this winter.
Abha currently sit 17th in the Saudi Pro League, five points away from safety, and has also already been knocked out of the King’s Cup after losing to Al-Khaleej in the quarter-finals.
On the other hand, Mosimane has been without a club since he departed from Emirati giants Al-Wahda last November after just 10 games in charge.
This will mark Mosimane’s second stint in Saudi Arabia following a stint with Al Ahli Jeddah for the 2022-23 season when he led the club to the promotion and the Saudi First Division League title.
