“Additionally, Mosimane expressed his happiness to work at Al Ahly and stated that he wants to continue his mission with the African Club of the Century.
“Finally, Tawfik concluded by saying that the discussions went in a friendly way about the team’s future and that both parties agreed on settling all the matters by the end of the current contract.”
