Al Ahly lost 3-2 on penalties to minnows El Geish in the Egyptian Cup Final. This means that Mosimane and his staff have missed the opportunity to claim domestic honours for this season.
The game ended in a dreary 0-0 after normal and extra time at the Borg El Arab Stadium last night. It went to penalties where things went south for the reigning African champions.
The high-profile cup final was attended by the new Egypt national team coaching staff. Carlos Queiroz and his staff was warmly welcomed by both sides.
Al Ahly missed three spot kicks and scored two, while El Geish scored three penalties and missed two. The game ended in glory for the minnows who won their first ever trophy.
This means that Al Ahly have not defended two of their three trophies from last season.
They have since lost out on the league title to bitter rivals Zamalek. The gap in the end was a staggering 4 points.
This defeat now puts a dent into the massive achievement of Pitso Mosimane and his staff in their tenure in Egypt. They are now under massive scrutiny.
Mosimane’s saving grace is that he won consecutive CAF Champions League titles. Pitso Mosimane And Al Ahly Lose Egyptian Cup Final!
