Luis Miquissone has explained the decision to join Al Ahly after receiving a lot of offers from other clubs.

The 26-year-old penned a deal with the Egyptian Premier League outfit last month after parting ways with Tanzanian outfit Simba SC.

The former Mamelodi Sundowns winger claims he could not turn down a club as big as Al Ahly, who aim to win every trophy.
