Pienaar returned to Mzansi at the start of the 2017/18 season to join Bidvest Wits, but earlier this year decided to mutually terminate his contract and has now gone on to confirm that he is hanging up his boots.

Having graced the pitches of some of the best stadiums in the world during his time with Bafana, Ajax Amsterdam, Borussia Dortmund, Everton, Tottenham Hotspur and Sunderland, the two-time Eredivisie winner has opted to call it a day shortly before his 36th birthday.
