Cape Town Spurs have completed the signing of Miguel Dias on loan from Orlando Pirates for the remainder of the 2020/21 season.
The former PEC Zwolle and Pretoria University midfielder penned a deal with Pirates in 2020 after parting ways with the University of Pretoria (AmaTuks).
But Dias’ time with the Soweto giants went under the radar and he has since explained why in an interview with his new club, CT Spurs.
“So, I signed with Orlando Pirates before the year ended last year, but I was signed with them until the end of this season to play a couple of months in the ABC league, because the year before I had come back from a meniscus injury, so I was out for about 4-5 months,” said Dias.
“When I got out of the operation, that’s actually when I got released from Tuks. So, I had to do a lot of rehab and everything, so by the time I was cleared to play, the season had already started… so, I was in a bit of a situation because the teams already had their players.
“But I just needed to be playing football, so I just thought let me start somewhere. Then I was playing for Pele Pele FC, which is the ABC Motsepe team for Pirates. I thought let me just get back into it slowly, but because they weren’t sure when the ABC league was going to start again, the coach decided maybe a loan would be best so I don’t miss out on more playing time.
“But I was also playing in Johannesburg for the Orlando Pirates Fives team, and that’s where the connection also came out.”
