Just last week, reports from the UAE highlighted that Pitso Mosimane experienced a sudden illness, leading to an urgent hospitalisation for treatment.

Now, after a brief four-month stint with Al-Wahda, Mosimane finds himself back in the job market following his departure from the United Arab Pro League side.

Mosimane joined Al-Wahda in June 2023, just a few days after parting ways with Al Ahli Saudi.

The four-time UAE Pro League champions had high hopes that Mosimane, with his extensive experience, would lead the side to success.

The 59-year-old mentor was thrilled to join the UAE Pro League outfit along with his regular technical team, which included Maahier Davids, Kabelo Rangoaga, Musi Matlaba, Kyle Solomon and Hamad Alyami.

Despite the initial optimism, Mosimane’s tenure at Al-Wahda has come to an unexpected end after just 10 matches in charge, where he won six games and suffered four defeats.

Following the departure of the former Mamelodi Sundowns and Bafana Bafana mentor, reserve team coach Arno Buitenweg will step in to take over the coaching reins.
