Despite being linked to some of the big clubs in the PSL previously, Monare says he is happy with Wits and would not mind ending his career with the current Absa Premiership log leaders.

Last year Wits exercised the two-year option they had in the player’s contract and it will expire at the end of the 2019/20 campaign.

"I am also shocked as you are, but I'm happy at Wits." Monare told, when asked about the reported interest from Amakhosi and the Brazilians.

Asked if would like to retire at Wits, the former University of Pretoria FC and Jomo Cosmos player said: "Yes. You can quote me no problem. I actually don't like talking about retirement, it depresses me. I'm enjoying myself and I feel like we also have a good set up, and we also have a squad that is capable of winning things so. I feel like I'm at the right team, I feel like at the moment I'm going to be in this team, so,I wouldn't at this point think about anything else besides our team which is Bidvest Wits.

“I think that's what should matter in football, winning things and a good set up, which is what we have."

Despite being one of the most consistent players in the PSL, Monare has never been given an opportunity to represent the country at senior level.

"Bafana Bafana have a coach. I believe he is one of the best in the country and I believe he has a way in which he wants to play, has his own style of play which comes with players. So I feel we just have to respect and support the Bafana Bafana team."
