Pitso nearly signed Vini Jr and Liverpool’s Luis Diaz at Sundowns

Pitso Mosimane has revealed that Mamelodi Sundowns misssed out on a chance to sign Liverpool’s forward Luis Diaz while he was still coaching the Brazilians.

This comes after Down coach Manqoba Mngqithi mentioned that the club was also looking at signing Real Madrid star Vinicius Jr before he moved to Spain.

Pitso has been a big fan of South American players

Mamelodi Sundowns scouting networks have brought the likes of Gaston Sirino and other South American players to the Premier Soccer League(PSL).

Pitso has won trophies with the likes of Mauricio Affonso, Ricardo Nascimento, Ali Meza and Sirino, who all hail from South America

“I found all the South Americans in South America. I was going there, breaking them(away from their clubs), bringing them to Sundowns. I did it myself, don’t listen to anybody.

“If you want to do something, you’ll make time,” Pitso Mosimane was quoted on Soccer Laduma.

“You know Luis Diaz, the guy playing for Liverpool on the left? I nearly bought him for Sundowns. I’m not lying, he was in Colombia,” said Pitso.

Last year Mngqithi revealed that Sundowns were delayed by a day which saw them lose out on Diaz. The Colombian striker was snatched by Porto.
