New Al Ahly Star On Pitso Relationship
Luis Miquissone, who was also linked with Kaizer Chiefs, has explained why he joined Al Ahly and also addressed his relationship with Pitso Mosimane after not playing a single game under him during two years at Mamelodi Sundowns.
The 26-year-old is one of Al Ahly’s new signings ahead of the new season, joining the Egyptian giants from Al Ahly.
Miquissone was signed by Sundowns in January 2018 but was loaned out to Chippa United, before being loaned to Royal Eagles.
The winger left Downs without ever playing for the club in January 2020 to join Simba SC where he impressed, in particular in the CAF Champions League.
Despite previously not playing under Mosimane, Miquissone praised the Al Ahly coach and says he’s learned a lot from him.
“The relationship between me and coach Pitso is so good. When I was a player in Simba, I faced Al Ahly and it was great to see him,” he told Al Ahly’s media department.
“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 in Mamelodi Sundowns was so good; he made me to be a good player and to be better. He made me know more about football, as football is not just to get good things, but you need also to learn about bad things.”
Miquissone also explained why he joined Al Ahly despite having offers from other clubs.
“I received a lot of 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.”
“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.”
