Reyaad Pieterse, the goalkeeper for Mamelodi Sundowns, has stated that he is okay with sitting on the bench for his team. The player is struggling with a gametime.
Reyaad Pieterse, a goalkeeper for SuperSport United and former Kaizer Chiefs, has only made 12 appearances for Mamelodi Sundowns in six seasons. But he is happy with that.
Who would want to join a club where dues are either late or never paid? Reyaad Pieterse of Mamelodi Sundowns has been asking himself this question. Is the reason why he does want to leave the club.
The goalkeeper, who was born in Johannesburg, claims that his fellow DStv Premiership club has too many financial issues.
“I mean if you look at the economy… truthfully speaking, who wants to go to another club where there’s a possibility of you not getting your money on time or not getting it at all?” Pieterse said via The Sowetan.
“We are in a day and age where you can’t afford things like that happening in your life. I mean, I have kids who need to go to school.
“People are looking at me as a breadwinner and I must look after them and make sure things are happening,” the former Kaizer Chiefs and SuperSport United number one concluded
Pieterse’s Sundowns contract has a two-year option to extend it, and it expires in July 2025.
