Ahly technical staff announced on Wednesday that the South African coach Pitso Mosimane has tested positive for COVID-19.
The club’s official website said that Mosimane will be isolated and subjected to the protocol of the Ministry of Health to treat coronavirus patients.
Mosimane joined Ahly last October coming from South Africa’s Mamelodi Sundowns, after the departure of the Swiss coach Rene Weiler, leading the team to win Egyptian Premier League, Egypt Cup, and the African Champions League.
Ahly are scheduled to face Ghazl El-Mahalla on Friday in the second round of the Egyptian Premier League.
The Red Devils have collected their first three points in the new season after beating Masr El-Maqassa 3-1 in the first round on Sunday.
