The 29-year-old embarked on a venture back into Europe in 2016 as he penned a deal with Ligue 1 outfit, Stade Rennais, however chances to impress were slim, and after spells with AFC Eskilstuna, Vitoria Setubal, and an almost perfect loan spell with RC Lens, he was snapped up by Benni McCarthy.

Now, with the talented forwarded scoring some rockets in the Premier Soccer League following his return, it’s sparking memories of his 2014/15 season with the Buccaneers where he reached double figures prior to his move to France.

This week the Siya crew caught up with the former SuperSport United star to see how the Bafana Bafana international was coping in lockdown, and he opened up about his time overseas, working with McCarthy at City, and why there’s still more to come from him.

Speaking to Soccer Laduma, ‘Romeo’ said, “I think the opportunity was there, and when opportunity arrives, it’s a decision you’ve got to make whether you take it or not… I decided to take it.

“So I wouldn’t say it was a wrong move, I think it would have been a wrong move if I didn’t take it at all, because I would never have known what would happen.

“I’ve learned so much having taken the move, and it’s benefitted me in ways that I see now - not only on the field, but off it as well.”
