Al Ahly captain Mohamed El Shenawy says the club's success under new coach Pitso Mosimane has to do with the way he treats his players.
Mosimane left Mamelodi Sundowns after guiding the side to a domestic treble last season.
He joined the Egyptian giants at the semi-final stage of the CAF Champions League and successfully steered them to the winners' podium.
He also directed eight wins and one draw in their nine league games to claim the Egyptian Premier League, on top of securing a place in the Egypt Cup final, to be played on Saturday.
Reflecting on the past few weeks, Shenawy had nothing but praise for Mosimane, following their transition from departed head coach Rene Weiler.
He was reported by KickOff as saying: "Mosimane is very close to everyone and treats players like his children and he always tells us to enjoy football.
"We knew him already and have been following him since he was coach of Sundowns.
"We felt a change in Weiler's treatment and he stopped doing some things, while others felt that he wanted to leave.
"So management decided to let him go and bring Mosimane to maintain the stability of the team [for the final stages of the season]."
