Former South African youth international Junior Khanye has reiterated his wish of making a comeback to the PSL before he officially retires from football.
Khanye is still active in the game, amid playing in the lower divisions for Ngwaabe City Motors in the ABC Motsepe League in Limpopo.
Khanye, 34, sent his video to the Siya crew which is showing him performing amazing skills with the ball to the amazement of the onlookers.
The attacking midfielder says he has been getting messages from football fans encouraging him to return to professional football.
“You should notice that in this video I am doing what I am doing with the ball wearing jeans. I had popped out to just fill up the car at the petrol station when those guys just threw the ball to my direction and challenged me to show them what I am all about and what I can still do,” the Daveyton-born star boasted.
“As I have been saying all along, I haven’t retired from football and I am still playing. I believe I can still play at professional level as I am still 34 years old, and there are a lot of players that age (who) are still playing. I am talented and no one can take that away from me. I said it before and I will say it again, I will play again in the PSL before I retire. Kaizer Chiefs taught me a lot of things and I can’t just stop like that. I can still teach some of the PSL players a thing or two. Imagine what I can do if I can get a proper chance to train fully with them (PSL team). I don’t drink and I don’t smoke. Any chance that I can get I am ready to use it,” adds Khanye.
“I had been offered coaching positions in the ABC Motsepe League before, but I rejected them because I am a player and I still want to play at the top. What you see in the video is nothing, and wait until you see me on the field and playing in a match and you will be amazed. I played for Chiefs for two seasons and imagine if I had played for 10 seasons.
“I remember playing for Chiefs in my first season and getting Man of the Match awards in like 10 matches in a row. I went on to win the Rookie of the Season award that year, before I started with my bad ways of going to training drunk and late and all those things. I am matured now and I no longer do any of those things,” Khanye concluded.
