Veteran attacker Mark Mayambela says he is coping well despite being without a club for the remainder of the 2019/20 season.
The 32-year-old well-travelled midfielder was last with Cape Town City, in the Premier Soccer League, but saw his contract terminated in February.
Mayambela has been without a paycheck since leaving the Citizens, but says he is happy ahead of finding a new team for the upcoming campaign.
The former Orlando Pirates, Djurgarden, SuperSport and Ajax player told the Sowetan he is maintaining his fitness, while 'engaging with other teams' over a potential new deal.
He said: "Not really, it (my life) hasn't been difficult at all.
"And also, it is a decision that I took after leaving Cape Town City, I decided that I will stay without a club until the end of the season. Then I can start pre-season with the new team. So, I'm good and I'm healthy and everything is well."
Mayambela added: "No doubt we are in a bizarre situation whereby nothing is confirmed. I think it's important for everyone to be safe with the current situation.
"I have been engaging with other teams, but there is nothing concrete yet...
"I've also realised that a lot of teams have taken a strain financially, I have heard stories of players being paid half salaries. I know that financially, it has killed a lot of teams; I have been getting calls also from players telling me about their situations in their teams."
