Mamelodi Sundowns forward Gaston Sirino admits that sometimes his emotions gets the better of him on the field.

The 29-year-old joined Sundowns in January 2018 after making the switch from Bolivian outfit Bolivar, where he scored two goals and assisted a further two from 29 appearances, to help them lift the Copa Libertadores.

Sirino has since become a regular starter under coach Pitso Mosimane and already managed to feature 90 times, bagging a total of 22 goals and assisting a further 26 in the process.

However, Sirino admits he is a very emotional player but it boils down to his passion for the beautiful game.

‘[Laughs] I am a very emotional player. I put everything into every game and sometimes I let my emotions get the better of me,’ Sirino told his club’s official website.

‘I am growing as a player and a person and want to leave that all behind. I feel like I have become a senior player in the team now and need to lead by example.’

The Absa Premiership is suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic, but Sirino insists that he has been keeping sharp and fit during lockdown.

‘I am working on staying sharp and relatively fit, nothing beats training on a pitch and match fitness, but I am doing what I can. I have a couple of drills that I run with, but we need to be back on the pitch,’ he added.

‘We are all training together a few days a week online, and then I do another session in the evening with Melania.’
