On loan Al Ahly striker Hossam Hassan has revealed his emotional suffering under ex-coach Pitso Mosimane whom he says didn’t believe in his abilities.
Hassan who spent the previous season on loan at Smouha, spilled the beans on treatment under the South African manager, Mosimane.
The talented hitman revealed that the former Mamelodi Sundowns boss, Mosimane didn’t like him. He added that he even tried to convince him with fine displays, but his efforts were in vain.

KingFut reports that the forward, Hassan spent the previous term on loan under both Mosimane and Marcel Koller where he says his suffering occurred.
“It’s a great honour to play for Al Ahly. It was a lifelong dream of mine to join either Al Ahly or Zamalek, which I achieved when I moved to Al Ahly,” Hassan told the website.
“I had a great ambition that I wanted to achieve with Al Ahly, but things didn’t go well. With Pitso Mosimane, I was psychologically affected.
“I used to participate in the last minute of every match, and I entered the match against Pharco in the last second, and I was almost in tears.”

In addition, the 29-year-old is contracted to the Red Devils until 2026 and continued to criticise Mosimane for his sentiment in the media.
Despite the treatment he allegedly suffered under the former Al Ahli Saudi mentor, the goal poacher who scored seven goals and provided five assists in the last term is still keen to return to Cairo.
“He used to say in press conferences that the team lacked a striker and then he excludes me from the squad,” he added.
“I know that my level is much better than that, so I decided to go out on loan to play, shine, and come back to Al Ahly again, as I don’t like to be in the role of an employee.”
