Downs Coach Praises Sirino, More Transfers Coming?

Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Rulani Mokwena has praised Gaston Sirino's attitude and gave a hint about a couple transfers.

The Brazilians opened their DStv Premiership campaign with a 1-0 win over AmaZulu on Friday evening, with Themba Zwane getting the only goal of the game from the penalty spot.

Sirino was linked with a move to Egyptian giants Al Ahly in the past few months, but Mokwena says Sirino has pledged his commitment to the team.

"Gaston [Sirino] very important player for us, settled now focused, he pledged his commitment and this is what we say all the time.We can't remember one or two mistakes when the player has shown us 150 times that he loves the club, he's committed to the club," Mokwena told SuperSport after the game.

"And sometimes you try to forget one or two occassion and it happens to everybody you know where we make mistakes and we try to remember the 99 times that he's respected us, fought for us and helped us to win football matches.

"And we're happy that his attitude is here and he's settled, focused on helping the team meet it's ojectives and we continue to work.

When asked about any more business in the transfer window, he added, "Whether or not we're done on the transfer window, that one let's wait and see because we're working on one or two deals but we can't let the cat out of the bag yet."
