Andile Jali’s agent, Mike Makaab of Prosport international, has ruled out the player’s return to the Absa Premiership.

Jali is rumoured to be moving back to South Africa, with Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates mentioned as his possible destinations, but Makaab says the Bafana Bafana midfielder will stay in Europe for now.

“There’s no chance of Jali coming back to South Africa. It really is impossible, so he is definitely not coming back,” Makaab told Phakaaathi.

Jali caused a stir on Thursday when he tweeted something that seems to suggest he is flying home to South Africa to join Pirates.

The Belgium-based Bafana star posted on Twitter a picture of himself with a backpack on his back and captioned it with an emoji of a plane next to one of a skull and crossbones, the Pirates logo.

“If Jali doesn’t stay with Oostende, then we’ll find another club for him in Europe,” concluded Makaab.
