South African Pitso Mosimane has been profiled in the New York Times following his multiple trophy-winning winning exploits as head coach of Egyptian club Al Ahly.
Mosimane has won two CAF Champions League trophies since arriving at Al Ahly in September 2020, winning his first major triumph by beating Zamalek in the final of that tournament just three months into the gig.
In the following CAF Champions League final last year, he faced familiar foes Kaizer Chiefs and again came up trumps.
Since his arrival in Egypt, he also won the Egyptian league title, the Egyptian Cup and the CAF Super Super Cup.
Rory Smith, who authored the New York Times profile on the former Mamelodi Sundowns mentor, focused on how Mosimane was overlooked for a nomination in FIFA's seven-member shortlist for the men's coach of the year award.
"It is not only Africa" that is overlooked, Mosimane says in the piece.
"It is as though it does not mean as much when you win in the competitions that do not generate the most money, that do not have the biggest audiences."
