Pitso Mosimane bombshell: Sirino wants to come to Al Ahly

Freshly crowned CAF Champions League winning coach Pitso Mosimane has confirmed that his former star player Gaston Sirino wants to move to Cairo.

As previously reported here on Futaa in November, Pitso’s move from Mamelodi Sundowns was closely followed by rumours of Sirino following him to the African giants in Egypt.

While Sirino has remained out of Sundowns’ team since then, and while rumours of the move have only grown in intensity, Mosimane has since revealed that everything is simply what it seems to be.

“Yes, Ahly want Sirino and they spoke to Sundowns officially and all that, I don’t want to tell you too many things that have been happening,” Mosimane said via Soccer Laduma.

“The president of Sundowns was here (in Egypt). Danny Jordaan (SAFA president) told me that Dr Patrice Motsepe was with him, but we didn’t meet, probably because he was busy.

"But you can’t tell me there have never been talks about Sirino at that level, I know because I get the feedback. Sirino wants to leave to come to Ahly,” concluded the two-time CAFCL winner.
