Pitso Mosimane was celebrating his birthday yesterday and the famous football coach is now 58 years old. Luckily he was not away as he is used to be when busy with coaching tasks. He returned to South Africa after parting ways with Al Ahly last month and is still free from the stress of managing a team.
His family had some small celebration they did to honour him yesterday. His wife Moira Mosimane took to social media to appreciate him. “Happy birthday to a great friend, husband and father @TheRealPitso. Thank you for always staying true to who you are, being an amazing partner, and making sure that our family is always proud. I wish you all the blessings,” Moira tweeted.
Later, “Jingles” went to Twitter to give thanks to those who wished him a happy birthday. “Thank you for all the birthday messages that have made my day so special today. I cannot express how happy and appreciative I am. I will try respond to as many as I can but please know I see them all and I am humbled. Love you all,” he tweeted.
MOSIMANE COMMENTS AFTER BEING SNUB FOR CAF COACH OF THE YEAR AWARD
Pitso Mosimane didn’t make the final cut for the CAF Coach of the Year award category that was eventually won by 2022 AFCON winning coach of Senegal – Aliou Cissé.
A football journalist who’s also a fan of Mosimane on Twitter expressed his sadness after not seeing the name of the former Al Ahly coach in the list that was announced by CAF yesterday. He said, “Really sad to see Pitso Mosimane didn’t make the final cut for the CAF Coach of the Year award. Thoughts everyone.”
Then Mosimane replied and said he didn’t expect to win the award as he got bronze at FIFA Club World Cup and silver at CAF Champions League. “Honestly, I should do better. I can’t expect to be bronze (FIFA Club World Cup ), silver (CAF CL) medalist and win. But my daughter already gave me the award for winning the same FIFA bronze & CAF Super Cup & Champions League( 2x in a row nogal) in the absence of Caf awards,” Mosimane tweeted.
