Mayambela: No concrete offers yet

Mark Mayambela says he is coping well despite being without a club for the remainder of the 2019/20 season.

The 32-year-old well-travelled midfielder was last with Cape Town City, in the Premier Soccer League, but saw his contract terminated in February.

Mayambela has been without a paycheck since leaving the Citizens, but says he is happy ahead of finding a new team for the upcoming campaign.

The former Orlando Pirates, Djurgarden, SuperSport and Ajax player told the Sowetan he is maintaining his fitness, while 'engaging with other teams' over a potential new deal.

He said: "Not really, it (my life) hasn't been difficult at all.

"And also, it is a decision that I took after leaving Cape Town City, I decided that I will stay without a club until the end of the season. Then I can start pre-season with the new team. So, I'm good and I'm healthy and everything is well."

Mayambela added: "No doubt we are in a bizarre situation whereby nothing is confirmed. I think it's important for everyone to be safe with the current situation.

"I have been engaging with other teams, but there is nothing concrete yet...

"I've also realised that a lot of teams have taken a strain financially, I have heard stories of players being paid half salaries. I know that financially, it has killed a lot of teams; I have been getting calls also from players telling me about their situations in their teams."
