Agent Gives Jali Update After Latest Talks

Mike Makaab, the agent of Andile Jali, has revealed he had a meeting with the former Mamelodi Sundowns and Moroka Swallows midfielder to discuss his future.

Jali, 34, has been without a club since parting with Swallows in January over their financial dispute.

As a free agent, he could sign with any club, but the midfielder is also considering whether to hang up his boots and will make a decision in the next two weeks.

“Andile and I had a meeting, we discussed a lot of things. We both agreed, he’s mature about it, that he needs to make a decision whether he wants to continue or not,” he said on Gagasi FM.

“He’s 100% committed to making a decision that he will stick to. If he decides that he is going to continue playing, I can guarantee you he will get himself into great shape and he’s going to be ready for the new season because he is a man, who still has – in my opinion – a couple of seasons and unfinished business.

“But he did inform me, that if there is any element of doubt in his mind as to whether he has that desire, appetite to continue playing, any doubt, he won’t play, he’ll announce his retirement.

“So I’m expecting him to make a decision in the next week, maximum two weeks for AJ to make up his mind and then for us to sit down and look at opportunities for him, based on whichever way he decides to go.”
