Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates said I was too old to play for them - Delron Buckley

Delron Buckley says Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates said he was too old to play for them when he returned from a 13-year career in Europe in 2012.
When my contract finished at Karlsruhe in 2013 I contacted a few clubs like Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates‚ because I was interested to come back and play for them.
"But I was told that I was too old and I wasn't good enough.
"But then I got a phone call from Ernst Middendorp‚ because he knew I was a free agent‚ and he asked me if I was willing to go and play for Maritzburg United.
"And I said‚ 'Ja‚ of course. Definitely. I want to come home. I want to finish off my career at home'.
"Which I did‚ and I came back and played two years."
Buckley (39) was speaking at the launch of his book‚ "Delron Buckley‚ My Life"‚ in Durban.
