Mamelodi Sundowns president Patrice Motsepe has reportedly called an emergency meeting at Chloorkop after reports emerged that coach Pitso Mosimane is set to resign and join Al Ahly.

A TimesLive report kicked off a media frenzy on Wednesday morning with Mosimane’s exit now looking likely despite Sundowns not yet making an official statement on the matter.

Sources in Egypt say that a deal with Ah Ahly is on the table with Jingles set to come in and replace Rene Weiler.

Now a report says that Motsepe has called a meeting at Chloorkop to discuss a way forward with regards to the latest developments.

"The president has called an emergency meeting to discuss the issue of the coach," a source at Sundowns reveals. "The club is expected to release a statement this afternoon."

With the news reverberating across the continent, Sundowns are expected to sort the matter out quickly with the new season just weeks away.
