Mosimane makes shock Sundowns exit

The most successful coach in Mamelodi Sundowns history Pitso Mosimane

Pitso Mosimane has confirmed his departure from treble champions Mamelodi Sundowns.

The 56-year-old, who recently signed a new four-year deal with the Premiership club, is reportedly set to join Egyptian giants Al Ahly.

Earlier reporting indicated Mosimane had been approached by Al Ahly president Mahmoud El Khatib after guiding Sundowns to a domestic treble this season.

Part of a statement from the record-setting South African coach read: "It is with a sense of pain and sadness that I announce my departure from Mamelodi Sundowns Football Club.

"I have accepted an offer to join an international team."

Mosimane continued: "From the deepest of my heart, I am so grateful that the President has blessed my move.

"I did not expect less from a man who has been so good and generous to me.

"He is the kind of leader any family, company, team and indeed any country needs. I have been privileged to drink from his well of wisdom.

"I leave this family knowing that our bond is unbreakable and hoping that with the passage of time, our paths would come together again. This is not a divorce. We shall remain bonded forever."
