Mamelodi Sundowns

Sundowns Take Pieterse Decision

Mamelodi Sundowns are understood to have taken a decision on the future of goalkeeper Reyaad Pieterse, the Siya crew has learnt.

It came as quite a shock at the end of the 2020/21 campaign that Sundowns opted to exercise the one-year option on Pieterse’s contract considering just how far on the periphery he had been.

Sundowns had also roped in two of the best young goalkeepers in the DStv Premiership in Ricardo Goss and Jody February, which placed Pieterse’s position in further doubt.

However, Pieterse went from on the verge of leaving the club last season, to working his way back into the reckoning, where he has established himself as the third choice behind Kennedy Mweene and Denis Onyango.

In the season gone by, Pieterse has played more games for Sundowns than he has in any of his previous three seasons with the club, he made nine appearances in all competitions.

As a result, the Siya crew has learnt that Sundowns have taken the decision to exercise the second one-year option on the 30-year-old’s contract, which will see him remain with the club until at least 2023.

Pieterse, who joined the club in the 2018/19 season was set to see his current deal with the club expire in a months’ time but the crew understands that he forms part of the club’s plans for the upcoming season.
