Chiefs rejected in favour of Al Ahly

Premiership

KickOff.com has established that Mozambican international Luis Miquissone has turned down the option of joining Kaizer Chiefs in favour of a move to Al Ahly.

Miquissone is currently with Tanzania heavyweights Simba SC, who he joined at the beginning of last year from UD Songo in Mozambique.

Information reaching this website is that the 26-year-old has chosen against the idea of joining Chiefs due to his past experiences in South Africa, which spanned three different clubs.

Miquissone was brought into the country by Pitso Mosimane while he was at Mamelodi Sundowns at the beginning of 2018 but was never used through his time at the club.

He was then loaned out to Chippa United, where he played only a single game. Another loan move to Royal Eagles also brought no joy, which ultimately forced him to return to UD Songo.

He has since excelled in both the domestic competitions and the CAF Champions League with Simba, prompting Mosimane to again raise a hand of interest with Miquissone’s South African agent.

It is understood that the parties are already in negotiations after a club-to-club agreement was reached in principle between Simba and Ahly.

In moving to Egypt, Miquissone’s earnings are set to double at the minimum, with his current monthly earnings in Tanzania, when converted to South African Rands, already in six figures. 

Mahmoud El Khatib, the president of Al Ahly, has also already made direct contact with Miquissone to show just how much he is valued at the club.
