DISCARDED SuperSport United midfielder, David Mathebula, is back in Jozi to weigh his options for his next move.
Absa Premiership rookies Baroka FC have shown some interest in signing the veteran midfielder, but Mathebula is in no hurry to decide on his next move.
The 33-year-old midfielder from Giyani was released from his contract by the Tshwane giants, with two years still remaining on his contract.
The former Kaizer Chiefs star has been struggling for game time since the arrival of coach Staurt Baxter at the beginning of last year.
Mathebula says he still has a lot to offer as he targets regular game time this year.
He has been training hard during the festive season to make sure he’s fit for his next challenge.
Mathebula said: “It’s sad that I left SuperSport, but life goes on. There was no guarantee I would play regularly. I’m looking for more game time. I’m prepared to work hard and double my efforts in training to fight my way into the starting line-up.
“I hope my experience will be used elsewhere.”
The change of coaches also unsettled the player at the club.
Mathebula went on: “If the deal is right, then I’m happy to sign on the dotted line!
“SuperSport were good to me, but I’m not going back there. I’m looking for a team that will give me a good offer and some game time.”
Mathebula knows he won’t be guaranteed game time at his next destination, just like that. But a change of scenery will renew his hunger for the game.
Mathebula added: “I know it depends on the coaches, but I’m confident I can still deliver at the highest level. Competition for places in the starting line-up is tough everywhere, but nothing beats hard work.”
