South African legendary gaffer Potso Mosima has revealed how he nearly signed Liverpool’s Colombian winger Luis Diaz for Mamelodi Sundowns.
In an interview with DJ Sabby of Metro FM, the 59-year-old South African said,
“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.”
“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”, added Mosimane.
The 3 times CAF Champions League winning manager is currently unattached as he is waiting for the right offer to continue his illustrious career.
