The former Ajax Cape Town star, who was strongly linked with a move to Mamelodi Sundowns in 2014, last represented GladAfrica Championship side Steenberg United before moving abroad.

"My focus right now, I just want to be away from South Africa, away from a lot of things in South Africa," Konqobe tells KickOff.com.

"My desire is to be in Europe, to go to the highest level, play in the highest leagues, push as much as I can to see where I can go. In the PSL maybe in the future, but not right now."

Much has been said about the ex-AmaZulu defender regarding apparent mistakes he has made in the past, but he says South Africans are infamous for misjudging their footballers.

"Regrets? I don't have any regrets, none at all," Konqobe, formerly Magqwaka, continues.

"I don't regret anything I've done in the past. I maybe made mistakes but mistakes made me a better person, a better player today.

"I wouldn't talk about the South African community, but unfairly judging me? That's something they do to a lot of players, especially talented players.

"But that side of the community and everything, that's none of my business and I don't have any regrets."
