Why Pienaar Needs To Return To The PSL

Talk of Steven Pienaar's potential return to the PSL has diminished somewhat after it was reported that he is back in England training with Sunderland, but should he rather choose South African over the UK? Yes, and here's why! 

The midfielder has been without a club since June after he was released by Everton, and it is now believed that he is chasing the possibility of staying in England.

"Schillo" is said to have previously held talks with Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns, but no agreement between the respective parties was reached.

Today, we take a look at why Pienaar should seriously consider retiring in Mzansi. 

The EPL Is Too Much For Him
Pienaar turned out just 13 times in the past two seasons for the Toffees, and with the English game growing increasingly faster and more physically challenging, there are concerns regarding how he would cope if he were to play in England's top flight once again. Now 34, injuries have plagued Steven's career over the last two years, and many feel that he can't compete with the game.

He Can Educate The Youth
There is no doubting the knowledge Pienaar gained during his time in Europe, and he is certainly one of the country's best players ever produced. Having him return to Mzansi would be great for the development of many players in the league and he will be able to educate them through the skills, knowledge and experience he absorbed while abroad.  

He Can Finish His Career On A High
Silverware is bound to follow Pienaar if he joins Pirates or Sundowns, and he could definitely hang up his boots in style if he were to join one of the South African clubs. He would also play in front of an audience that loves him and is eager to see and appreciate his football. Who doesn't want to play in that kind of reception?

Do you think Pienaar should return to Mzansi?
