Having plied his trade in the Netherlands, Belgium, Norway and England, Bafana Bafana striker Lars Veldwijk is yet to get a taste of PSL action, but the Dutch-born striker has not closed the door on that happening just yet.
Veldwijk joined reigning South Korean champions Jeonbuk Motors in January and made his debut for the club during a 2-2 AFC Champions League draw with Sydney FC in March, but had to wait until earlier this month to make his league debut due to the coronavirus-enforced break.
The Netherlands-born striker marked the occasion in some style, however, coming on as a late second-half substitute to score a 93rd-minute winning goal in his side's 2-1 K League 1 victory over Busan IPark.
Following the encounter, the former Sparta Rotterdam striker spoke with Soccer Laduma to discuss the motivation behind his move to South Korea, and whether or not he would consider playing in South Africa in the future.

"For me, I didn't know a lot about the South Korean league (before the move) but I like to take this adventure and learn a new culture and about the people," the 28-year-old explained.
"It's a different style of play for me again and I think that it's good for me as a player to learn a lot of different styles of football, like the African, Asian and European styles, while also learning more about the culture of other people, which I'm really interested in.
"... I actually spoke last summer with one team in South Africa and was close to signing for one of the PSL teams and unfortunately it didn't go through then.
"So, I was close to that, and also in the winter again I spoke with one of the coaches of one of the teams in South Africa. It's possible. I think – I will not say for sure that I will come – but it's still on the list for me and I really want to come and play in the league in South Africa one day."
