Al Ahly fitness coach Kabelo Rangoaga honoured with top award!

Al Ahly fitness coach Kabelo Rangoaga has finally been recognised for his behind-the-scenes hard work by the North West province.

Rangoaga was on Friday night honoured with the Premier’s award at a glittering event that took place in Sun City – North West Premier Bushy Maape did the honours.

This was the first time in two years that the North West province was honouring those who continue to shine in the sport industry. The previous two events were cancelled due to Covid-19.

While Rangoaga may not always be recognised since he’s behind the scenes, his work speaks volume over the past 13 years.

His main responsibility is to take care of the physical well-being of the players, ensuring that they are conditioned for competitive matches.]

WHO IS AL AHLY’S KABELO RANGOAGA?

Rangoaga was born in Rustenburg, and he made a name for himself at the now-defunct Platinum Stars whom he joined in 2009.

He would work for Dikwena until September 2014 when Pitso Mosimane roped him in as part of his backroom staff at Mamelodi Sundowns.

Rangoaga worked with Mosimane at Sundowns until 2020 when Al Ahly acquired the services of the Kagiso-born mentor on a two-year deal.

Again, Mosimane convinced Rangoaga to join him at Al Ahly, and the pair alongside Musi Matlaba, have created magic at the Club of the Century.

Through their hard work, Al Ahly have won back-to-back CAF Champions League in 2020 and 2021, two CAF Super Cup titles, the Egyptian Cup, and Egyptian Premier League.

Furthermore, Al Ahly bagged back-to-back bronze medals at the FIFA Club World Cup in 2020 and 2021, and thus becoming the first African team to achieve that.
