Speaking during an interview with, Merahe could not fail to hide his frustrations about the possibility of starting a new season without a team.

“I’m sad and frustrated at not having a team. I am even starting to lose the will to go to training as there appears little hope of finding a new team.

“There was interest from Maritzburg United, but no-one came back to me. I am so desperate to play soccer again that I am ready to go anywhere as long as they give me a good offer. I will keep training hard and hopefully something positive will come up soon,” he adds.

Meanwhile, another Orlando Pirates transfer-listed midfielder, Luntu Mazana, who has been on loan to Bay United, is reported to have been offered a new contract by the PSL rookies after helping them qualify for the Absa Premiership.
