"It is my intention [to leave],” Sirino told Laduma. “But it does not depend on me, but on Sundowns to accept the offer.”
The Sundowns are also not happy with how Sirino has portrayed the club according to Times Live.
“We are disappointed with the manner in which Gaston has conducted himself by going to the media,” said Singh, who suggested that Sirino may be punished.
“We don’t think that he is doing this thing on his own. He is being coached by outside forces who are messing up his mind.
