Mosimane tests positive for COVID-19 ahead of FIFA Club World Cup

Al Ahly head coach Pitso Mosimane has tested positive for COVID-19 days ahead of the Reds opening game In the FIFA Club World Cup.

Following their victory over Kaizer Chiefs in the 2021 CAF Champions League final, Al Ahly have secured their spot in the Club World Cup for the second consecutive year.

The Reds will open their campaign in the second round against CONCACAF Champions League champions Monterrey, and if they make it through, they will be up against Brazilian giants Palmeiras.

However, it won’t be an easy task for the African champions, who will face Monterrey without several of their key players, who are currently on international duty for the AFCON in Cameroon.


The players are mainly Mohamed El-Shennawy, Ayman Ashraf, Mohamed Abdelmoneim, Hamdi Fathi, Amr El-Sulya, and Mohamed Sherif. Joining them are injured Percy Tau, Akram Tawfik, Salah Mohsen and Badr Benoun.

Matters are only getting worse for Al Ahly as they received another heavy blow today, with club head coach Pitso Moimane testing positive for COVID-19.

As a result of Pitso’s positive test, he is quarantined in his hotel room, unable to attend the team’s training ahead of their opening game on the fifth of February.
