Cape Town - Former Mamelodi Sundowns striker Mame Niang reveals he has no interest in moving to Europe despite strong interest from Norweigan club Konsvinger.
Niang has received an offer from his former team Konsvinger in Norway, which he played for in 2010, but he is adamant about remaining in South Africa, with his family and business interests.
He is currently without a club after his contract with the Brazilians expired at the end of last month.
"There is interest from Konsvinger. They are serious about having me on board, but the problem is I have businesses in Johannesburg and I am getting married in Cape Town in December. I want to stay in South Africa," Niang told the Sowetan Live.
"For now my agent is busy contacting teams and I am training on my own. Hopefully things get sorted out as soon as possible. I am running like crazy in the gym and I am lifting weights. Let's hope I find a club because I believe I can achieve a lot when I am fit.
"It did not go well [at AmaZulu last season]. I was injured the whole time. It also did not go well at Sundowns, but I managed to learn a lot from there. Sometimes there are disappointments, but that's how life is."
