Last Friday saw an intense Cairo Derby take place between the two footballing giants of Egypt, Al Ahly and Zamalek. Given the importance and intensity of the rivalry between the two capital based sides, the match progressed from start to finish rather smoothly, except for a few minor incidents which has now seen former Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane and his Al Ahly team issued fines by the Egyptian Football Association (EFA); Al Ahly came out victorious during the matchup, thrashing Zamalek 5-3. Although the fines may not seem that important, they were issued to Pitso and his coaching staff for entering the field of play while celebrating certain goals during the clash. Speaking on the SL Podcast’s ‘The Carwash,’ former Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana star, Teko Modise (who of course played under coach Pitso) has come out and said “If Pitso goes a season without a fine, it was a bad season.” This fine is a testimony to the passion that coach Pitso has, the drive and the will to succeed. Football comes first for Pitso and he is able to draw his team and coaching staff into his own ideologies of the game, which evidently proves to be rather successful. The fact of the matter is, Pitso doesn’t care about the fine, he cares about winning and doing well.

On the latest episode of The Carwash, former Mamelodi Sundowns and Ajax Cape Town goalie, Sean Roberts and former Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana star, Teko Modise discuss the latest news from the local game, with rumors of Gavin Hunt’s job being on the line after a run of poor results. The guys also talk about some advice that a former Downs coach has issued to Mokwena and his co-coaches. Later in the show, Soccer Laduma’s International news correspondent Kurt Buckerfield links up to discuss the return of Xavi Hernandez and the latest with Ole Gunner Solskjaer.
