Ex-Bucs winger still has a lot to give

Premiership

Sifiso Myeni says he is not yet done playing football and will hopefully to return to the beautiful game soon.

The former Orlando Pirates midfielder has been without a team since last season after parting ways with Bidvest Wits.

'Ntsunda' trained with both Chippa United and Highlands Park during the off-season but a deal did not materialise.

The 31-year-old is currently focusing on his SAB League team Myeni FC while waiting for an opportunity to bounce back in his career.

"I am currently busy with my team in the SAB League. This is a way of ploughing back into the community," Myeni tells KickOff.com.

"The team is based in Ennerdale and I realised that the place does not have opportunities like Soweto where players can be scouted. I was fortunate enough to be scouted and by the grace of God made it to professional football.

"I want to open opportunities for these youngsters in the area so that they can also realise their dreams in football. This project is also a way of taking them off the streets where there is a lot of social illness like abuse of drugs, especially nyaope. I want to give them hope.

"As much as the dream is to see the team promoted, what is most important now is to see some of these youngsters getting the opportunity of being scouted by the top-flight teams. Already one boy has gone to Stars of Africa Academy and one was signed by a Vodacom [ABC Motsepe League] team."

Myeni has assured his fans that his football career is far from over and he will bounce back.

"I feel touched when I meet soccer fans who still want to see me playing football," he adds. "They take photos and this motivates me a lot that I still have a lot to give to football."
