Pitso Mosimane accused of favouritism towards Percy Tau & Luis Miquissone


Former Al Ahly boss Pitso Mosimane has been accused of showing favouritism to former PSL stars Percy Tau and Luis Miquissone during his time in Egypt.

Earlier this week, Pitso Mosimane’s near-two-year rein as Al Ahly came to an end after the club announced that it had parted ways with the South African coach by mutual agreement.

The former Mamelodi Sundowns coach won two CAF Champions League trophies, two CAF Super Cups and an Egyptian Cup during his spell in charge.

However, despite his success, Mosimane often faced criticism from Egyptian press, colleagues and contemporaries during his time in Egypt, with that trend continuing even after his departure.

Former El-Ittihad head coach Mohamed Omar is among the latest to add his dissenting voice after criticism Mosimane of showing favouritism to the former Sundowns duo of Tau and Miquissone.

"Percy Tau is a very good player, but Miquissone hasn’t shown good performances with Al Ahly yet, despite that, Mosimane always gave him chances," Omar said, per KingFut.

"On the other hand, Mosimane didn’t give other players like Hossam Hassan nearly as many chances as he gave Miquissone, which is unfair."

Hassan has made 13 appearances for Al Ahly this season, failing to find the back of the net to date, while Tau has netted eight times in 26 games, and Miquissone three times in 16 matches.

Egypt international Mohamed Sheriff was the team’s most used, and indeed most prolific attacker under Mosimane this season, netting 11 times in 31 appearances across all competitions.
