Mofokeng targeting Premiership return

Former Platinum Stars and Ajax Cape Town defender James Mofokeng doesn't believe his career is over despite being without a club for the last three years.

Still just 28, the defender has not made an appearance in the South African top flight since suffering relegation with Santos in 2017.

Until that point he had enjoyed a fairly illustrious career having won both the MTN8 and Telkom Knockout competitions in his time with Dikwena.

However, he is struggling to prove to clubs that he still has something to offer the highest level of the local club game.

"I haven't retired, I still want to play in the PSL," he told KickOff. "I won NFD title with Chippa United, also won MTN 8 and Telkom knockout with Platinum stars so now I want to return to football and end my career with a league or Nedbank Cup winner's medal."

According to KickOff, Mofokeng currently works as a football coach at the Vaal community school and believes his lack of business acumen means he should've had an agent to help him negotiate deals.

"The biggest challenge, I didn't have an agent to help me find a club, so I had to find another job to survive," he said.

He has recitified the situation and now has representation, which he hopes will help him find a new club.

"But now I'm represented and the good thing we've been talking with few teams in both GladAfrica Championship and Absa Premiership."
