Former Bafana Bafana winger Thuso Phala says he wasn't happy with the lack of game time at SuperSport United and decided to leave the club.

“My relationship with SuperSport ended prematurely but in a happy way, I was happy with the deal and so was the chairman. I approached the club about the lack of game time, so I suggested an exit for me and the club happily agreed because my contract was not going to be renewed next season.”

The 32-year-old confirmed that he was talking to a few clubs in the Absa Premiership but rubbished reports linking with a move to Orlando Pirates.

“I am training on my own at the moment, there are some offers but I am taking my time to make the right decision about where I am going to be next season,” Phala told SAFM.

“Clubs have been speaking to my agent but I can’t say their names, but there is nothing from Pirates, I know that is the rumour but I haven’t heard anything from Pirates.”

Phala has been linked with Highlands Park and Chippa United.
