Official: Pitso Makes History In Saudi

Pitso Mosimane, the renowned South African tactician, has made history in Saudi Arabia as his team, Al Ahli Saudi, clinched the Yelo League title with one game remaining. The victory came after a hard-fought 1-0 win over Al-Qadisiyah on Tuesday, with Ryad Boudebouz once again displaying his prowess from the penalty spot.

Al Ahli Secures the Title

Al Ahli’s triumph against the 11th-placed Al-Qadisiyah propelled them to an impressive total of 71 points on the league standings.

This accomplishment guaranteed them the championship as their closest rivals, Al Akhdood, stumbled to a 3-2 defeat against Al Sahel SC, leaving them with 65 points and trailing behind second-placed Al Hazem, who secured 67 points. With only one game remaining, Al Hazem cannot bridge the four-point gap to catch up with Mosimane’s Al Ahli.

A Historic Achievement for Mosimane

Mosimane’s Al Ahli has already celebrated promotion two weeks prior, and now they have added the Yelo League title to their accolades.

This achievement marks another historic milestone for the South African coach. When Mosimane took over, Al Ahli was in fifth place, but with 18 victories, six draws, and only three defeats, he guided the team to secure the Saudi First Division title.

Mosimane’s Illustrious Career

This victory marks Mosimane’s 19th career title and his first outside of Africa. He had previously claimed titles such as the SAA Super Eight and his first Nedbank Cup with SuperSport United.

His successful tenure at Mamelodi Sundowns brought him five Premier Soccer League titles, two additional Nedbank Cups, two Telkom Knockouts, one CAF Champions League, and one CAF Super Cup. Mosimane continued his winning streak at Egyptian giants Al Ahly, where he secured two more CAF Champions League titles, two CAF Super Cup titles, and an Egyptian Cup.

Future Prospects

Despite his remarkable achievements, there are speculations that Al Ahli may not exercise its option to extend Mosimane’s contract for another year. It is believed that the club is considering a new coach to lead them in the Saudi Pro League, signaling a potential change in direction for the team.

Pitso Mosimane’s success in Saudi Arabia has solidified his reputation as one of Africa’s most accomplished and respected coaches. As his tenure at Al Ahli draws to a close, football enthusiasts eagerly await the next chapter in his illustrious career and the impact he will continue to make in the world of football.
