Mukwena decided to continue with Sundowns.
“I have received many questions through the media about my joining Al-Ahly,” Mukwina said in an official statement issued through his accounts on social media.
He stressed, “It is necessary to announce that I am in Sundowns, and I will remain here.”
“I am very happy here, and I have a feeling of pride after my return this season, and I would like to declare my commitment and loyalty to the club, its president, management and its fans.”
Musimani was supposed to bring with him 3 assistants, Rolani Moccuena as assistant coach, Capello Rangwana as load coach, and Moussi Matlapa as performance analyst, but only Rangwana and Matlapa attended with Musimani to Cairo.
Musimani, 56, signed a two-season contract with Al-Ahly, and his mission begins with the Red Citadel with a strong confrontation against the Arab Contractors on Sunday in the Egyptian Premier League.
His most important mission will be in the African Champions League, in which Al-Ahly plays against Wydad in the semi-finals.
Al-Ahly will be a guest at Wydad on October 17, and after 6 days it will host the return, and if it crosses for the final, it will face Zamalek or Raja.
Mosimane won the Champions League in 2016 with his former club Mamelodi Sundowns.
He served as coach of the South African national team from 2010 to 2012.
