Egyptian giants Al Ahly have reportedly offered Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane a salary in the region of R54 million per year – excluding win bonuses!
It’s little wonder Mosimane is packing his bags!
Mosimane resigned from Sundowns on Wednesday in a move that shocked the South African football fraternity and is set to become the first black African or non-Egyptian coach to lead the eight-time continental champions.
The KickOff website has learnt from an impeccable source that the new debit order set to bolster Mosimane’s bank account could be in the region of $270 000 (R4.5 million) per month.
That represents significantly more than Mosimane’s current Sundowns salary – which was believed to be in the region of R800 000 and R1 million per month – when he penned a new four-year deal back in May.
Mosimane, the 2016 CAF Coach of the Year, has agreed a two-year contract with The Red Devils and is set to put pen to paper on Thursday.
According to sources close to the deal with Ahly, Mosimane wants assistant coach Rhulani Mokwena, fitness trainer Kabelo Rangoaga and performance analyst Musi Matlaba to follow him to Cairo.
Today we say farewell to one of our own, @TheRealPitso!
