Pienaar Reveals What He Told Benni

Steven Pienaar Revealed What He Told Benni McCarthy

By David Kappel - Jun 23, 2017 09:17 AM @kappilinho

There is talk that Steven Pienaar and Benni McCarthy could be reunited at Cape Town City and Schillo now revealed what told his former Bafana Bafana teammate after he was appointed as CT City head coach.

Pienaar’s contract with Sunderland will run out by the end of the month and he has been named, as many other players have, to be released by the Premier League. 

The 35-year-old is currently in South Africa to promote his annual community tournament as well as to find a Premier Soccer League club, where he could end his career.

The former Bafana captain said that he called Benni to wish him luck in his new role before revealing a joke between the two former teammates.

“I think he has got the character to do well. He first started as an assistant at a club in Europe, did all his coaching badges,” Pienaar told Soccer Laduma in an exclusive interview.

“I just want to wish him well. He got my support 100 percent.

“I told him if he needs a ball boy, he can let me know (laughs).”

When asked whether he could imagine joining McCarthy’s project at Cape Town City, Pienaar revealed that he is keen to join a PSL club in the upcoming window.

“I just want to finish my career in South Africa. If it’s Cape Town, Jo’burg or Durban, it doesn’t matter,” he added.

“I just want to play and enjoy the last couple of years in my career, because when you retire you will miss the game. I want to make sure before I retire, I leave my mark back home.

“It is also important that you feel needed by the club’s coach.”

Read the full exclusive interview, where Pienaar also chats about rumours linking him with Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates, his community tournament and the chances of retiring, in this week’s Soccer Laduma, edition 1028.

All I know is that this donkey is going to spend the next season in the bench of one of small teams in England, if not Sunderland, Evarton it might be Stoke City or Swanswer.
