Former Orlando Pirates midfielder Sifiso Myeni says he has not given up on playing professional football and is willing to join a club in the national first division.

The now 31-year-old Myeni last played for a professional club during the 2017/18 season when he was at Bidvest Wits but has not been able to find another team that will use his services.

Myeni lamented that fact that teams in South Africa write players off if they are over the age of 30.

"If God gave you the talent, only God can take it away from you and no one else," Myeni told DailySun.

"Football is my thing. I love playing football. I know I can still give more. I won't mind even playing in the NFD.

"Sadly in South Africa, once you have hit the 30s age mark, people write you off and it is a bit difficult to get a club.

"That is something I cannot control. But my agent is working on something to get me a club."

Myeni has won two PSL titles, has the same amount of MTN8 winners medals and as many Nedbank Cup trophies in his career.

He was also part of the Orlando Pirates side that lost to Al Ahly in the Caf Champions League final in 2013.
