Pitso Mosimane: A New Chapter In UAE with Al Wahda FC

South African Coaching Maestro Continues Gulf Region Journey

Pitso Mosimane, the highly decorated South African coach, has embarked on a new journey in his illustrious career. After a turbulent period with Al Ahli in Saudi Arabia, which saw him dealing with unpaid salaries and eventually terminating his contract, Mosimane has now been appointed as the head coach of Al Wahda FC in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Pro League.

This appointment marks Mosimane’s fifth club in a career spanning over two decades. His coaching prowess and leadership skills have been recognized globally, with 19 major trophies to his name. His previous coaching stints include SuperSport United, Mamelodi Sundowns, Al Ahly in Egypt, and Al Ahli in Saudi Arabia.

Al Wahda FC, a team with a storied history and four UAE Pro League titles under its belt, welcomed Mosimane with open arms. The club’s board of directors expressed their excitement and optimism about Mosimane’s appointment, stating their hopes for him to meet the club’s leadership, administration, and fans’ ambitions.

Mosimane’s appointment comes at a crucial time for Al Wahda FC. The team finished third in the 2022-23 UAE Pro League standings, narrowly missing out on qualifying for the prestigious Asian Champions League. With Mosimane at the helm, Al Wahda aims to regain their prominence on the domestic and continental stages.

Mosimane’s move to Al Wahda FC also signifies his continued love affair with the Gulf region. Despite the challenges he faced at Al Ahli, including promoting the club from the second division Yelo League to the top flight in just one season, Mosimane has chosen to continue his career in the Middle East.

The details of Mosimane’s contract with Al Wahda FC have not been disclosed yet. However, his representatives have assured that the details will be revealed in due course. As Mosimane prepares to take on this new challenge, the football world watches with anticipation, eager to see how this new chapter in his career unfolds.
