In Discussions, Veteran Defender’s Decision Pending…

A decision is pending on one of the PSL’s veterans who is nearing the end of his contract with his club.

After it was initially thought that he could be nearing announcing his retirement from professional football, having also started doing his coaching badges and with his contract with Stellenbosch FC expiring at the end of next month, Marc van Heerden confirmed in edition 1271 of Soccer Laduma that he is far from hanging up his boots.

He said, “Ja, look, obviously I still want to play football and I feel like I’m still 28. My fitness is not lacking and I still feel like I’ve got a good four to five years left in me, so I definitely want to carry on playing and technically, I am a free agent. I’ve had some discussions with my agent Mike Makaab and he has given me some sound advice, but like I say, I want to carry on playing and whether that will be here at Stellenbosch or elsewhere in the world, it’s yet to be confirmed. In the meantime, I will continue to work hard to be a top professional for the next couple of years.”

With three games remaining for Stellenbosch in their 2021/22 DStv Premiership campaign, indications are that no decision has been made on the 34-year-old just yet, while a possible move back to either Gauteng or KwaZulu-Natal could be a possibility for him if the Western Cape club decides against retaining him, according to sources.
