Khethokwakhe Masuku admits he is enduring a frustrating club search but has vowed to return soon.
Masuku recently had an unsuccessful trial at Cape Town City, having asked to be released from his contract with Bloemfontein Celtic in the new year due to insufficient game-time under Serbian mentor Veselin Jelusic.
The 32-year-old is currently training on his own in Soweto.
"It didn't go well [at Cape Town City]. I am back ekasi now," Masuku explains to KickOff.com.
"Currently I'm still trying to put something together you see. I'm training alone in the gymnasium."
The dribbling wizard is unsure why he was turned down by the Citizens.
"I can't tell [you]. Benni [City coach McCarthy] was someone who was talking to Eric [SuperSport boss Tinkler] about everything you see, because the chairman [John Comitis] called me to the office and it seemed we were going to sign after the negotiations, only to realise they've changed their minds. Benni made Tinkler my reference as he is one of the coaches that I've previously worked with [at Orlando Pirates].
"Currently no team has called me about offers. Sometimes it does frustrate me. You see when you are at my age and not working it does frustrate.
"What I can tell my fans is that 'Bhere' Masuku will come back soon, he will bounce back and be the player they know. He is currently training, not just sitting at home."
City chairman John Comitis couldn't be reached for a comment.
