- Former Orlando Pirates midfielder Sifiso Myeni is targeting a return to the Premier Soccer League (PSL)
- Myeni has warned that it's too soon to write him off even though he's been without a club for more than a year
- The 31-year-old still keeps fit and is running his own football club to provide youngsters with the opportunity to succeed in the game
Sifiso Myeni enjoyed a glorious spell in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) with Orlando Pirates a few seasons ago.
The midfielder has since fallen on hard times and last featured during the 2017/ 2018 season for Bidvest Wits.
However, Myeni has warned his detractors that it's way too soon to write him off as he targets a return to the big time.
Daily Sun reported that the 31-year-old still feels that he can be a match winner on his day.
Myeni said, “Football is my thing. I love playing football. I know I can still give more. I won’t mind even playing in the NFD."
Briefly.co.za understands that Myeni is still keeping fit while his agent searches for a new club.
Myeni added, “Sadly in South Africa, once you have hit the 30s age mark, people write you off and it is a bit difficult to get a club."
The winger endured fruitless spells at Bloemfontein Celtic, Chippa United and Highlands Park, but it was with the Buccaneers that he achieved true success.
Myeni boasts an enviable record after having won the league, Nedbank Cup and MTN8 all on two occasions.
Myeni is not remaining idle while he waits. He started his own football club, Myeni FC, six years ago and funds it personally.
He said, “I want to unearth the next Sifisos. That is my goal. I want to see more of them getting opportunities to play at the highest level, just like I did.”
