Pitso Mosimane has Al Ahly playing like Liverpool – Egyptian legend

Pitso Mosimane has been lauded by Egyptian and Zamalek legend Mido for the positive changes he brought to Al Ahly.

Former Tottenham, Ajax and Roma striker Mido believes Pitso Mosimane’s touch on Al Ahly is highly visible while going as far as comparing Pitso’s Red Devils to English Premier League champions Liverpool FC.

Mido’s praise will be a bitter pill to swallow for certain Al Ahly legends who have been tarnishing the reputation of Pitso Mosimane in Egypt during recent weeks by questioning his tactics and ability to lead a team of Al Ahly’s magnitude.

Egyptian legend lavishly praises Pitso Mosimane

Al Ahly moved top of the table following an easy 4-1 victory over Entag El-Harby on Tuesday night and the victory has earned former Mamelodi Sundowns mentor Pitso Mosimane lavish praise.

“During the first-half, Al Ahly appeared very poorly against Entag El-Harby. Their opponents had the advantage over them,” Mido told KingFut.

“However, Al Ahly under the leadership of Pitso Mosimane is distinguished by some specific details and the South African’s touch can be seen. Mosimane’s Al Ahly play from the back and are very quick in applying the pressure. They became like Liverpool.

“Before Hussein El-Shahat’s goal, the ball was possessed by Entag’s players, before four or five players from Al Ahly applied high pressure and managed to intercept the ball. This is Mosimane’s touch that we didn’t see with former head coach René Weiler,”

Pitso Mosimane and Al Ahly next turn their attention to National Bank who they face on Sunday afternoon in an Egyptian Premier League clash that will conclude match-week seven.

Al Ahly lead the log standings in Egypt over arch rivals Zamalek courtesy of a superior goal difference. A victory on Sunday is a must for Mosimane and his men should they wish to maintain their lead atop the Egyptian Premier League standings.
