Cape Town - Senegalese striker Mame Niang believes his tenure at Mamelodi Sundowns was unsuccessful because the club did not make full use of his strengths.
Niang spent just a single season at Sundowns, with the towering forward making five appearances and scoring one goal.
Last month Niang signed a one-year loan deal with AEL Limassol in Cyprus.
"People just need to understand that I have my own style, which is completely different to the club's," Niang told Soccer Laduma.
"I also had coaches build their teams around me, but that was obviously not the case at Sundowns.
"I was happy to bring a different dimension to the team because, in modern football, you can't be predictable otherwise you will find it difficult to win games.
"You get teams that 'park the bus' and that's when you need to play balls over or behind them.
"That means you need height, so that's what I brought to Sundowns. I can safely say that was the whole purpose of my move to Sundowns, for both parties."
