Why Al Ahly Were Outclassed In Club World Cup



Former Mamelodi Sundowns Coach Pitso Mosimane who is currently heading up Egyptian Champions Al-Ahly, has experienced ups and downs with his new side having already captured a CAF Champions League title towards the end of last year, his side’s performances in the league have raised questions in Egypt.
