Former Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has revealed how they missed out on signing Liverpool star Luis Diaz.

“You know Luis Diaz, the guy who is playing for Liverpool on the left? I nearly bought him for Sundowns. I’m not lying! He was in Colombia,” Mosimane told Metro FM’s DJ Sabby in an interview.

“We were on top of Diaz. Unfortunately, we delayed one or two days, and he signed for Porto. We’ve looked at a lot of players including Vinicius Jr. I don’t want to lie to you.”

“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.
