Al Wahda have reportedly found a permanent replacement for Pitso Mosimane.

United Arab Emirates side Al Wahda have reportedly found a permanent replacement for Pitso Mosimane following his exit late last year.

After conquering African football with both Mamelodi Sundowns and Al Ahly, the Kagiso native decided to take his tactical prowess to the Arab world.

First, Mosimane would revive Saudi Arabian giants Al Ahli as he helped them gain promotion to the Saudi Pro League by winning the nation’s second division title.

The former Bafana Bafana head coach would not get a chance to lead the Public Investment Fund-led side any further, though, as he was dismissed shortly after taking the club back to the Saudi top flight.

That experience, however, did not deter him from continuing in the Middle East as he then took the reins of Emirati side Al Wahda.

His stint in Abu Dhabi was short-lived, however. Ten games into his tenure there, Mosimane was dismissed, with the club temporarily replacing the three-time CAF Champions League winner with Dutchman Arno Buitenweg in an interim capacity.

According to Al-Khaleej Sports, Al Wahda have now found a permanent successor to Mosimane, with the club believed to be close to acquiring Serbian tactician Goran Tufegdzic’s services.

The Pozarevac-born manager has vast experience in the UAE Pro League, having coached six different clubs in the division over the past eight years.

The same report claims that the two parties are currently in contract negotiations, and that he is expected to become Al Wahda’s new boss imminently.
