Why Miquissone Chose Pitso Over Chiefs & Co

Al Ahly’s latest signing Luis Miquissone has opened up on his move to the Red Eagles, revealing why he chose Pitso Mosimane’s side over the likes of Kaizer Chiefs, who were chasing his services.

Last week, the 26-year-old completed his move to the Egyptian giants from Simba SC just one day before Percy Tau also made a move to the reigning CAF Champions League holders.

Now, after sealing his reunion with Mosimane, the man who he previously worked with during a short stint with Mamelodi Sundowns, Miquissone has revealed why he chose Al Ahly, despite interest from Chiefs, who as reported by the Siya crew, had also been chasing his signature.

“I received (many) offers during the previous period. I spoke with my agent, and we decided to come to Al Ahly. The club is so big, and their ambitions have no limits. I want to help the team win trophies. As a player, I also need to be part of this and to get my chance to help the team,” he told the club’s official website

“I need to grow up and to face big challenges, so that is why I chose Al Ahly. They need to win everything, and I need to be part of this. Any player dreams of playing in the FIFA Club World Cup. It will be a great experience for me.”

Furthermore, Miquissone touched on his relationship with Mosimane who was largely instrumental in the attacker sealing his switch to Cairo.

“The relationship (I have with) coach Pitso is amazing. When I was a player at Simba, I faced Al Ahly and it was great to see him. I spoke about him in a previous interview, and I said that he was the coach who helped me reach my peak and grow up as a footballer.”

“My experience with him at Mamelodi Sundowns was so good; he made me (become) a good player and be better. He (taught) me more about football, as football is not just to get good things, but you need also to learn about bad things.”
