Uruguay and Mamelodi Sundowns right winger Gaston Sirino is yet to forget his dream which is to join his former coach Pitso Mosimane at Al Ahly.
Months ago, the 30-year-old did his best to push for a move to the Egyptian Premier League powerhouse. However, the deal fell through as both sides found no agreement.
And as the CAF Champions league quarterfinal first leg will reunited both Sundowns and Al Ahly next Saturday, Sirino did not hide his will to join the Red Devils in the future and the excitement to play aginst the Cairo giants.
“It’s always good that a big team like Al Ahly to be interested in me. I’m very focused on keep playing well to appear and then we’ll see what happens,” Sirino told Sky News Arabia.
“I want to thank the Al Ahly fans for their love. It would be a great challenge if I could someday wear this shirt.
“The match against Al Ahly is an early final. It’ll be a great match because we are two very good teams, and it will be an important match as well, so we have to enjoy it.
“Al Ahly have very good players and a coach that makes them play well too, so it will be a very difficult game. I’m not afraid of any defense, I’m only focusing on performing well and winning for our team.”
