In Pitso Mosimane’s debut match as the club’s manager on Wednesday, Al Ahli Jeddah and Jeddah Club were held to a 1-1 draw.
After losing to Wydad Casablanca in the CAF Champions League final in June, Pitso Mosimane quit Cairo giants Al Ahly.
After a three-month break, the South African manager was later named head coach of Saudi powerhouse Al Ahli Jeddah, which has recently been having trouble.
After finishing 15th with only 32 points the previous season, the team was shockingly relegated from the Saudi Pro League for the first time in the club’s history.
In the Yelo League, they likewise had a bad start, winning just two of their first five games and falling to seventh place.
In Mosimane’s debut game as manager, Al Ahli hosted Jeddah Club on Wednesday. His team drew for the third time this season.
Haitham Asiri’s magnificent volleyed effort inside the box gave Mosimane’s Al Ahli the lead on 26 minutes.
In contrast, Jeddah Club could tie the score shortly after the hour mark with a fast counterattack.
The draw increased Al Ahli’s point total to nine, moving them up to the seventh position in the Yelo League standings as they prepare for Tuesday’s home encounter against Najran.
