Cape Town - Former Kaizer Chiefs player Junior Khanye believes he can still make an impact in the Absa Premiership despite approaching his 34th birthday on 18 June.

Khanye last played PSL football in the 2009/10 season when he was with Maritzburg United.

However, the 33-year-old made just a single appearance before disappearing from South Africa's top flight.

He is said to have had a spell with Malanti Chiefs in Swaziland and also was linked with a number of teams in the ABC Motsepe League.

Khanye was in Swaziland recently where he took part in a charity match and spoke to children about the importance of education and avoiding substance abuse.

According to KickOff website, the playmaker was a star performer as he mesmerised fans with his skills and trickery.

He told the same publication: "I just need maybe a last chance. You saw what happened here today [Saturday], people were happy and very excited.

"The sad story in South Africa about football is you are being judged by your past. I still have what it takes to play in the PSL, I am fit and raring to go."

The footballer has previously stated he intends to continue playing until the age of 42.
