Everton midfielder Steven Pienaar says it will be a dream come true to play in the Soweto Derby.
The former Bafana Bafana star has had a frustrating season at the Toffees, and has only managed to make five appearances all year due to injury.
Having played in many famous derbies in Europe, Pienaar, who is an Orlando Pirates supporter, has admitted that he would love to play in South Africa’s biggest fixture.
“Yeah, that would be a dream come true!” Pienaar told Soccer Laduma exclusively.
“A lot of players want to play in the derby as it is a big stage. Those are the games why you play football... to play in front of a lot of people and show your talent.
“Like I said, if any of the clubs would give me the opportunity, I would love to play in South Africa.”
The former Ajax playmaker was asked if there has been contact from any PSL clubs in the last few years.
“No, there hasn’t been anything.” He added.
