PSL vs Europe: What’s Best For Jali?

PSL vs Europe: What’s Best For Andile Jali?

By Soccer Laduma - Mar 16, 2017 10:31 AM

As reported in this week’s edition of Soccer Laduma, another Premier Soccer League giant has joined the race for Andile Jali’s signature, but is returning to Mzansi the right move for the player?

The Bafana Bafana international left South Africa in January 2014, having won a double treble with Orlando Pirates, playing alongside the likes of retired footballers Benni McCarthy and Lucky Lekgwathi.

Jali experienced a riveting time in South Africa’s top flight before jetting off to Europe to join up with Belgium-outfit, KV Oostende.

The player was able to replicate his fine form abroad, however, after three years, slowly fell out of favour at the club, struggling for game-time.

As reported in this week’s edition of Soccer Laduma, Mamelodi Sundowns have joined Kaizer Chiefs in the pursuit to lure the 26-year-old back to Mzansi. However, a source has informed the Siya crew that should the player return to his home country, Pirates will be the first PSL-outfit that he would consider.

The Siya crew got in touch with a local footballing agent who spoke on condition of anonymity to hear his thoughts on whether or not coming back home is the right move for the player.

“First and foremost, the question will be, ‘What does Andile (Jali) want to do?’ There is no doubt, if he wants to return to SA, clubs will be queuing up for his signature, and he will be in a situation to negotiate a big money salary. Returning to the PSL will always be an option, but if he wants to further his career, he may opt to stay in Europe,” the agent said in this week’s edition of Soccer Laduma.

But, would European outfits be still keen on the player if he is not seeing much game-time at this point in his career?

“The fact that he has not been playing regularly means that it might be a challenge to place him in Europe. But he did prove himself in Belgium when he was playing, so he will have to regain that form. He may be forced to take a salary cut if he stays in Europe, though, with the intention of furthering his career,” he went on to say.
