Myeni: Now I can walk tall

Deemed surplus to requirements by coach Muhsin Ertugral before the start of the 2016/17 PSL season, Myeni was put on the transfer list.

After one season in his second stint with the Clever Boys, he is now a league and cup double winner, while Pirates finished outside the top eight in arguably their worst season in PSL history.

“I was transfer listed at Pirates and that came as a shock. I did not know what would happen with my career, but look at me now,” Myeni tells KickOff.com.

“In a way I was frustrated, but I would like to thank Jose Ferreira and coach Gavin Hunt because they brought me into a winning team. Winning this title means a lot. It will stay with me because we made history. Now I can walk tall.”

Myeni will be fighting to get more game time Wits next season after playing a bit part role in the club's league and cup double winning season. He made just 10 starts and came on as a substitute 14 times in all competitions.

“When we started the team was doing well and obviously I could not play. The coach tried to fit me in. It's difficult to come in a team that had a pre-season and you did not have pre-season," he adds.

"Now I am starting pre-season with the team. My priority is to get into the starting line-up and play more games than last season."
