On Wednesday, Al Ahly announced that they have extended Mosimane’s contract for another two years.
Commenting on the news of his new contract, Mosimane said the contract is just a piece of paper and it doesn’t mean he will stay with the Red Devils until 2024 if he doesn’t deliver the results on the pitch.
“The [real] contract is on the field. We had been back and forth over it. The team is happy, and I am happy; that is more important,” said Mosimane as quoted by kingfut†
“The duration of the contract does not mean that you will stay until then (2024). If you keep winning of course, [you will stay until then] but if you don’t win, the contract is different.
“The contract is just good for disputes in case we divorce then you go to the newspaper.
“It’s not just a contract, but a contract for the team that plays in all the tournaments on the continent until the end.
“So, where do you want to go if you don’t want to stay here? Unless you’re going across the continent it’s a different setup, but beyond the borders you have a challenge with the Europeans; they come from big teams in the Gulf,” Mosimane added.
After the extension of his contract, Mosimane hopes to be able to write extra trophies to his name.
The former Bafana Bafana coach has broken records since his arrival in Cairo in October 2020.
Under his leadership, Al Ahly won back-to-back Café Champions League titles, two CaF Super Cups, the Egypt Cup and two Club World Cup bronze medals.
