Just four months into his new job at Al Ahli Saudi another trophy bell is ringing in the horizon with the Saudi first division title in sight.

Mosimane has led Al Ahli Saudi to a 13 games unbeaten run since taking over in September last year.

Not only is he cruising in the comforts of the desired promotion mission, Mosimane could as well land the title on their way back to the Saudi Pro League where Cristiano Ronaldo now plays for Al Nassr.

Saturday was another three points in the bag for Mosimane as his side overcame Al Qaisoma with a 2-0 win.

The goals were delivered by Ryad Boudebouz and Hicham Faik setting Al Ahli into a-three-points lead at the top with 37 points from 18 games.

Al Ahli have now won four in a row and through the month of January have collected 16 points out of 18.

Mosimane still has the comforts of starting his transfer window signings Brazilian hitman Marco ‘Marcao’ Amaral, Gambian attacker Modou Barrow and Saudi international winger Sumayhan Al-Nabit in games to come.

Next up for Mosimane is a home match against AL Akhdoud on Thursday.
