Dolly Silent On Future Amid Euro Rumours
Mamelodi Sundowns’ new vice-captain, Keagan Dolly, has refused to talk about speculation regarding his future, insisting that he’s focused on recovery.
The 23-year-old had a fantastic 2015/16 season as he helped Masandawana get their hands on the Telkom Knockout trophy and Absa Premiership title, as well as playing a vital role as South Africa’s U23s reached the Olympic Games - and his form has unsurprisingly attracted attention.
There have been rumours circulating that Greek powerhouse, Olympiacos, as well as Kermit Erasmus’ French club, Stade Rennais, are keen on the winger, however, he says that he is in no position to talk about his future right now.
It was reported by the Siya crew this week that there is a buyout clause of around R12m in the player’s contract, although it remains to be seen whether a club will be willing to match that price at this present moment.
When asked whether he could comment on his future, Dolly told the media at the 2016 MTN8 launch, “No I can’t. For now I’m focused on Sundowns, I’m a Sundowns player and I’m focused on getting back with the team and preparing for the new season.”
Dolly, who has been named as Sundowns’ vice-captain alongside Khama Billiat, is currently nursing a hamstring injury that he picked up in the final Olympic game against Iraq.
