I prefer to stay at Montpellier – Dolly


Former Mamelodi Sundowns and Ajax Cape Town winger Keagan Dolly says he would rather remain in Europe than return to the Premier Soccer League, where he’s linked with Kaizer Chiefs.

Dolly’s future at Montpellier is unknown. However, he clarified that he prefers to remain in Europe than coming back to South Africa.

“I’m not thinking of coming home anytime soon. For me, it is better to play that side (in France) and learn to become a better person on and off the field than staying in South Africa where I know, I might play week in and week out. That will not benefit me,” he said

Meanwhile, Dolly also insisted that he’s working very hard to make a return to the national team, Bafana Bafana.

“With all the injuries that I’ve picked up, it was the fact that I didn’t manage my body well especially with all the travelling in a space of one week with Bafana, I tend to want to do so much,” added the 27-year-old.

“I want to prove that I deserve to be there. I’ve learned and in the future, I know how to deal with travelling.”

Dolly has been battling with injuries, and he’s hoping that won’t disturb him to become a regular in Michel Der Zakarian’s side.

He has made six appearances for Montpellier this season and last played his game against Racing Strasbourg where Lebohang Mothiba is playing.

“For now, I’m focused on trying to get fully fit and stay injury-free,” concluded Dolly in a conversation with the South African Football Journalists Association (Safja)
