Keagan Dolly, the Bafana Bafana winger whose Montpellier contract comes to an end in June next year, has responded to rumours that he could return to the Premier Soccer League in the colours of either Mamelodi Sundowns or Kaizer Chiefs.
With injuries affecting his career for the last year or so, Dolly has found it tough to break into his club’s starting line-up, and naturally there have been calls for him to return home to sort of try relaunch his career.
But the 27-year-old is not having it…
“I don’t really read much into it because there is always rumours in football that ‘this player is going to that team and that player is going to this team,” Dolly, speaking during a press conference with the SA Football Journalists Association, explained.
“It makes me happy that the people back home are still missing me – to know that they haven’t forgotten about me. But I mean it’s just speculation. I know that myself, my agent and my family know what the plan is and what the vision is for my career going forward.”
Dolly has also reiterated that his focus is to first stay fit and hopefully remain at Montpellier in the French Ligue 1 instead of reuniting with his former Downs teammates or making a shock move to Naturena.
“When people speculate on me going to Chiefs or going back to Sundowns, it’s all speculation. I don’t really take it too deep or I don’t really read into it that much because I know what I want and what the plan is,” he said.
