Ahly South African coach Pitso Mosimane said that he needs time to implement his vision for the team, stressing the club needs to sign a talented striker like Manchester City star Sergio Aguero of Argentina.
"It's not easy to achieve positive results in football in a short time; look at Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp who gained trophies after four and five years of working," said the 56-year-old South African coach, who took the helm in Ahly last October.
On Thursday, the Cairo giants claimed their second bronze medal in the FIFA Club World Cup after beating Palmeiras in penalty kicks, but scored only one goal in three games the prestigious tournament.
"We need to sign talented players to support the team's squad ahead of the coming competitions," Mosimane told a television programme.
"We need to sign a striker like Manchester City's Argentinean Sergio Aguero to score more goals as we scored only one goal in the FIFA Club World Cup," the South African coach added.
Argentinean striker Aguero, 32, joined Manchester City in 2011 season, scoring 180 goals in 268 appearances after a brilliant spell at Spain La Liga side Atletico Madrid.
Mosimane claimed the triple with Ahly since his arrival four months ago, winning the Egyptian Premier League title, the Egyptian Cup and the CAF Champions League title.
The Red Devils will start their mission in the African Champions League group stage against Al-Merrikh of Sudan on Tuesday as they bid to make a return to the FIFA Club World Cup by winning their 10th Continental title.
"We are working to return to the FIFA Club World Cup next season by winning again the CAF Champions League but it won't be easy mission as it needs for more concentration from all players," Mosimane said.
