The former Mamelodi Sundowns mentor is on the verge of concluding a bumper new contract that will see him earn approximately R2.5 million a month.

“I believe Mosimane wants to stay at Al Ahly, but negotiations between the club and his agent are still ongoing. Al Ahly’s offer is between $160,000 and $165,000 (R2 491 919), with a three-month penalty clause.”
