Bafana Bafana midfielder Andile Jali says he is open to a return to South African football, despite KV Oostende exercising the option to renew his deal at the club.

The 27-year-old has recently been a transfer target for Absa Premiership giants Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns, as there still remains an uncertainty over the midfielder’s future.

Jali admits that he will consider offers from clubs in the PSL, although he is keen to remain in Europe for another season.

“Sometimes loyalty doesn’t pay the bills. So, money talks. If I get more money at home, then I will consider that,” Jali told the City Press.

The former Orlando Pirates midfielder revealed that he has improved his performance since making his move to Belgium, but he insists that he would like to work on improving his shooting ability.

“You know I have been fined five or six times for not shooting at goals, but for ­passing the ball to my teammates instead.” he added.

The Bafana Bafana midfielder has urged to get behind and support South African players, who are currently playing abroad.

“There are lot of challenges and the ­conditions are not nice. People must understand that we, as South Africans, are not as hungry as others from other parts of the continent because there’s still luxury at home.”

“Sometimes we have to push ourselves. No one will if we don’t,” Jali concluded.
