Chiefs, Sundowns, Pirates, Where Should Pieterse Go?
Where Should Reyaad Pieterse Go Should He Leave SuperSport United?
Reyaad Pieterse has attracted several suitors in the Premier Soccer League and Soccer Laduma takes a look at where he could go should he leave SuperSport United.
According to sources, the Brazilians have been keeping an eye on the player’s situation at SuperSport and could look to pounce on his services in the upcoming July/August transfer window. However, Sundowns currently have three shot-stoppers on their books; Denis Onyango, Brimah Razak and Kennedy Mweene with it being unlikely that Pieterse will see regular game-time.
Chiefs are believed to be hot on the chase for the 26-year-old, after the likelihood that Brilliant Khuzwayo may leave the club at the end of the season. Should Khuzwayo end up leaving the club, Amakhosi will be looking to find the next best man to provide cover for their number one shot-stopper, Itumeleng Khune. According to sources, Chiefs want to bring Pieterse back to the club, should SuperSport be open to the sale of the player.
Pirates are spoilt for choice in their goalkeeper department, having Wayne Sandilands, Siyabonga Mpontshane, Jackson Mabokgwane and awaiting the return of Brighton Mhlongo. However, with the team yet to establish who their number one goalkeeper is, Pirates may want to be open to assessing other options, thus acting on their interest in Pieterse.
Cape Town City:
City may be without the services of their second-choice goalkeeper, Shuaib Walters next season, as his contract with the club will be coming to an end on June 30 this year. The Citizens have been linked with both Brilliant Khuzwayo and Brighton Mhlongo, but recent revelations from Siya sources have indicated that the Citizens have been showing interest in Pieterse, with Head Coach Benni McCarthy keen on adding another goalkeeper to his books.
Pieterse’s contract with SuperSport will come to an end at the end of the 2018/19 season and with the team struggling at the bottom of the league standings, it remains to be seen whether management will be open to the sale of the player.
