South African football coach Pitso Mosimane‘s cult status in Egypt continues to grow, as does the pride back home in SA… with President Cyril Ramaphosa issuing a congratulatory statement for Mosimane’s latest accomplishment – leading the continent’s top football club, Al Ahly, to victory in the African Super Cup on Friday (28 May 2021).

Mosimane (56) has been heralded for not only his talent… but his belief and tenacity in propelling the team to victory. Al Ahly’s win over Renaissance of Morocco on Friday earned the former Mamelodi Sundowns manager his fourth title with Al Ahly since joining the club six months ago!

President Ramaphosa said: “Pitso Mosimane is an outstanding flag-bearer for our country and for football.

“His outstanding performance and that of his club show what is possible when talent moves freely around our continent to unite people from diverse backgrounds and national origin, and inspire them to achieve extraordinary things.”
