Mathew Booth, Former Mamelodi Sundowns defender has expressed strong believe that a move to Europe will be best for Keagan Dolly, stating that he is confident that Olympiakos will return with another offer for the South African in January.
The Greek giants have been keeping a close eye on Dolly, with a keen interest on the ongoing case between the player and Mamelodi Sundowns. Meanwhile the hope to make an offer for the Bafana Bafana international once the case is resolved.
Recall that Olympiakos have earlier in august matched Dolly’s buyout clause, unfortunately Mamelodi Sundowns has rejected the offer and a legal dispute ensured between him and the Chloorkop-based club.
He had stayed in Sundowns and put on an extraordinary performance that was phenomenal to the teams victory at this year’s Caf Champions League under the stewardship of Pitso Mosimane. He also put on quite a show at the 2016 Rio Olympic as he led the Bafana Bafana team of South Africa to the Olympic Games.
From all indications, Olympiakos will be in a stiff competition for the player as Goal have reported earlier this week that, Egyptian giants Al Ahly have started a fresh bid for the Former Ajax star. However, Booth has maintained that a move to olympiakos will be best for Dolly.
“I think Keagan moving to Egypt is highly unlikely. Olympiacos will still come back for him I feel and a lot will depend on the outcome from the Dispute Resolutions Chamber. The contract dispute with Sundowns is still ongoing and I think it is highly likely that he could move to Greece in January.”
Booth explained that the best move for Dolly is Olympiakos, as he would have a chance to play in the UEFA Champions League. He pointed out that the Cape Town star had already won the CAF Champions League, and should pick on a new challenge in Europe.
