Former Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Sibusiso Khumalo has revealed why he decided to quit the Chloorkop-based side last season.

Khumalo was snapped up from Moroka Swallows in 2013 but struggled for regular game-time.

The 29-year-old told the Citizen that he doesn't regret his time with Downs but moved on for a new challenge.

He said: "I left Sundowns in September last year. I sat down with them and we agreed to terminate the contract.

"There was no bad blood or anything like that. I just felt it was time to look for new challenges elsewhere."

Khumalo added: "I am not to say I was feeling my career was stalling because it is all up to me as a player... maybe I didn’t do enough to end up not playing.

“My career didn’t stall because I learnt a lot at Sundowns, which helps my career going forward.

"I just felt that moving on and getting to a team where I can get more game time was the right thing to do. I am willing to go to any team where I can get to play.

“But I would prefer it to be in the Premiership or overseas. But if a (GladAfrica) Championship side made the right offer, I would certainly consider it."
