Pitso Mosimane now has a clear idea of how his new job will start.
Pietso Mosimane will start at UAE Pro League club Al Wahda before the end of July after announcing the squad’s upcoming three-match schedule.
Mosiman took over for Al Wahda after a nine-month spell at Al Ahly FC in neighboring Saudi Arabia, replacing Dutchman Arno Buitenweg, who had been a caretaker since March. Identity took charge of the team, and the club finally ranked third.
The former Bafana Bafana coach will face Kuwait SC (Kuwait) in the group stage of the 2023 King Salman Club Cup (Arab Club Champions Cup) on July 28.
The next two matches will be against CAF opponents in CR Belouizdad (Algeria) on July 31 and then against defending champion Josef Zinnbauer’s Raja Casablanca (Morocco).
The King Salman Club Cup is a prestigious event in Arab football and this year’s winner will win a handsome $6 million (roughly R108 million) in prize money.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al Nasr and Karim Benzema’s Al Ittihad will compete in the July-August fixture in Saudi Arabia.
After the King Salman Cup, Mosimane will face Arbata in the league, who have appointed new coach Mirell Radoy.
Al Jazira, managed by Dutch legend Frank de Boer, will be Mosimane’s second league rival.
Although De Boer is a Dutch legend, his coaching career has not reached the level of his player period. It is known that he only lasted 10 weeks in the Premier League with Crystal Palace.
The third league game will be against another club under new coach Hatta, as will the next two against Shabab Ahly and Bani Yas.
Mosimane will also play in the Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank Cup (UAE League Cup), opening against newly promoted Emirates Club.
