“For me learning will never end, and that is why I am grateful that I played my part in the Rio Olympics because it was another learning curve for me,” said Dolly.
Dolly is a product of the South African Football School of Excellence – he got his break in professional football in 2014 before a transfer rollercoaster ride, which saw the lethal winger moving back and forth between Sundowns and Ajax Cape Town since 2011. However, the Amaglug-glug skipper says it has been a learning curve ever since.
“I have been learning since the first day that I played football, and now … every game that I play, I am learning more.”
Regardless of being arguably South Africa’s most valuable player at the moment, the national Under-23 captain and key player for the senior men’s and his club Sundowns, says he always looks to improve his game.
“It is the same here at Sundowns … I learn in every game that I play, and I will continue learning, and that helps me develop and improve my game,” he added.
Dolly, who is reportedly on the wishlist of Greek giants Olympiacos, will miss out on this evening’s Confederation of African Football (Caf) Champions League Group B encounter away to Nigerian heavyweights Enyimba because of an ankle strain, but the midfielder will most definitely use the opportunity to rejuvenate after having no time to rest during the off-season.
