Mokwena : Mosimane should close the chapter on signing Gaston Sirino

Mamelodi Sundowns’ assistant coach, Rulani Mokwena, said that Al Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane should close the chapter on signing Gaston Sirino.

Sirino was heavily linked with a transfer to Al Ahly for months as the player desired a reunion with former head coach Pitso Mosimane.

The 29-year-old publicly expressed his desire to leave Mamelodi Sundowns and join the Red Devils.

The South African giants had revealed that Al Ahly wanted to sign the Uruguayan in the summer but talks fell through between both clubs after failing to agree on a transfer fee.

Mosimane discussed Sirino’s transfer yet again last week, explaining how he tried to persuade him. Mokwena commented on his former manager’s statements, saying that he should move on.

“The Gaston Sirino chapter must be closed. Even coach Pitso (Mosimane) must close the chapter because Sirino is a Mamelodi Sundowns player,” Mokwena told Power FM.

“He signed a four-year contract. He said to us that he is happy to stay and has committed himself to the club.

“Just like we don’t speak about players from other teams, I think it is a little bit unethical to continue to have this talk about Gaston. The club has issued a statement on Sirino,” he concludes.

Sirino has been at Sundowns since January 2018 where he made over a century of appearances, scoring 24 goals and registering 30 assists. He was able to lift three league titles and two cups.
