Cape Town - Jomo Cosmos midfielder Thabang Monare expressed his desire to remain in the Absa Premiership following his side's relegation to the National First Division.

The 27-year-old admits it was difficult to watch Ezenkosi go down after losing to Maritzburg United 3-1.

However, he believes that he still has something to offer and would like to further his career in the South African top tier.

"Even now I can't recover from what happened to us on Sunday," Monare told KickOff. "Sometimes I wish someone can wake me up and tell me it was all a bad dream and we are still in the PSL.

"I recently received a call from Bra J; he wants to meet with me and my representatives.

"I enjoyed every minute I played for Cosmos because the Sonos have been good to me, but I feel like I need to grow as a player now; I need to play for honours and the PSL is the only league in this country that can give me such exposure."
