Sirino expressed his commitment to the task at hand in Chloorkop

Gaston Sirino was heavily linked with a move to reunite with former coach Pitso Mosimane at Egyptian giants Al Ahly during the last transfer window. Talks for this transfer operations unfortunately failed.

For the first time after his failed Al Ahly move, Mamelodi Sundowns forward has expressed himself since his failed move to Al Ahly.

However, after having signed a bumper new five-year deal at Sundowns as recently as June, the club was reluctant to release their Uruguayan star. And they placed a hefty price tag on his head.

After giving Ahly ample opportunities to offer the asking price, the Brazilians eventually pulled the plug on the deal at the end of December. And Sirino has since returned to the team.

Mamelodi Sundowns are currently sitting on the summit of the log standings after twelve games played with a total of twenty-six points accumulated.

Sitting on the same points as Mamelodi Sundowns are Swallows FC.

The two sides will do battle on the weekend for top position. The Brazilians recently welcomed Uruguayan Gaston Sirino back into the side after being out for a couple of months.

Sirino said, “I feel happy to be back in the side after being away for a long time. It’s a great feeling to come back and help the team with an assist or a goal whenever I can and I just want to go out and work hard for the side.”

Masandawana have in the last five official games, registered three wins and a draw, without having been beaten.

“This season we just want to make sure we keep the standard from last season and bring more accolades to the club, we want to dominate the league and go further in CAF Champions League, it is a cup where we come up against very good teams and we do have the players that can go out there and win the cup,” Sirino said.

The Brazilians are happy to have Sirino back with the squad and hopefully, he will emulate what he achieved last season.
