Sirino To Swim Or Sulk?
Posted: 29 December 2020
Ten-time ABSA Premiership Champions Mamelodi Sundowns yesterday released a statement confirming that they have stopped all forms of negotiations with Egyptian giants Al Ahly for the transfer of Gaston Sirino.
The South American playmaker had hoped for a move to Egypt to reunite with former mentor Pitso Jingles Mosimane, however, that will not materialise, at least in the next transfer window.
Sirino, a technically gifted footie, will now have to refocus all his energy on ensuring that he heals from his niggling injuries and nuckles down a starting berth in a team that boasts a galaxy of superstars.
Nonetheless, we’ve seen in the past how unhappy players can cause turmoil in dressing rooms, in and around training grounds, particularly South American players with their never-say-die attitude.
The question remains; should The Brazilians cut their losses with Sirino or risk unrest at the club or acceed to his ambitions of playing for the biggest club on the African continent?
That question will only be answered on that little green thing we call a football pitch once he starts dancing and gliding past defenders in the upcoming weeks and months.
