Former Mamelodi Sundowns defender Wayne Arendse is still without a club but insists he is not bitter about his time at Chloorkop coming to an end.

The 36-year-old spent eight years with Masandawana before parting ways with the club at the start of the new season.

Arendse says he looks back at his time with Sundowns fondly, and believes he will receive an offer from a South African club in the near future.

"I knew that at some point, I had to step down and make way for the youngsters that are here, that's all I can say," Arendse told Sowetan yesterday.

"I made a lot of good memories. That's what I'm taking with me, and titles. I have no grudges. I have been there for eight years.

"I would have loved to finish there, but the management had other plans and other ideas, and we just agreed, and I had to move on."

He added: "Hopefully, something comes out. I have not received any offers yet, and I hope I will get something soon.

"I still want to play because there is one trophy that is missing in my collection, the MTN8, and I would love to clinch that, but I'm still available and hoping the team which will sign me will win the competition.

"But a lot of teams are settled already from the transfer window. I'm still hopeful that something will come up, and I'm sure something will, and we will wait and see what comes out."
