Former Ajax Cape Town striker and 1999/2000 Rothmans Cup winner Carlo Scott wishes to return home after he was put up for sale by Sundowns after spending nearly three years in Pretoria.
Scott took time off from his solo training to speak to SAsoccer365.com journo Shahied Joseph about his forced removal.
"It did come as a surprise to me when they (the Downs management) told me that I'm for sale," a disheartened Scott said, "but I'm hoping to return home to Cape Town as I'd love to be back with my family and friends."
In the 2002/03 season Scott was loaned to Santos where he played nine games and scored five goals, helping the People's Team to the inaugural Absa Cup final, where they emerged 2-0 victors over neighbours Ajax Cape Town.
At the moment the future is very uncertain for the lively marksman.
"I'm not sure who is interested in me or what the price tag is but I hope it's not too high. I've got six months left on my contract with Sundowns though, but I hope to play premier soccer and not just sit idly on the sidelines."
Frenchman Paul Dolezar, who is in his second stint with the Brazilians, substituted Scott in his first game in charge against Jomo Cosmos after 30 minutes, his replacement Simba Marumo scoring a brace to give Downs a much-needed victory.
Scott denies any ill-feelings between him and the outspoken Dolezar.
"I did not get to know Paul well enough, so I won't say I had a fall out with him or that's it's because of a bad relationship that I'm on transfer, no not at all.
"I don't do training with him as the guys that are on the transfer list all workout on their own, at least without the coach, at Chloorkop."
Ishmael Maluleke, Sipho Ndzuzo, Charles Motlohi and Ivorian internationals Siaka Tiene and Franck Guela along with Scott are the players up for sale.
Jonathan Greenfield, Marcus Coetzee, Lucky Qaba and Nkosinathi Khumalo will be loaned to other teams in order for the youngsters to get match practice.
According to the Downs official website, Dolezar is on the look out for an additional two strikers to join the seven forwards that the club already has on it's payroll.
