Petersen Still Deciding Future

Contrary to some reports in the media, veteran Maritzburg United defender, Peter Petersen, has not yet decided whether he will retire from playing professional football. 

The 33-year-old, whose pro career started in 1998 with Hellenic in Cape Town, is still deciding about whether or not to continue his playing days. 

The right back, who made just five starts in the PSL for the Team of Choice in 2013/14, has explained he is waiting for Maritzburg to clarify what role they think he should play. Speculation is that Petersen could be offered a coaching role within the youth development set-up at the Pietermaritzburg-based club. 

The reliable Cape Town-born born full back, who has two Bafana Bafana caps to his name, is also waiting to find out what the club's plans are with regard a proposed relocation to the city of Port Elizabeth.

Petersen told the Siya crew, "I'll decide soon what my future is going to be in football. I've had a meeting with the club and I've got another one scheduled for sometime next week. I'm sure we'll sit down and come to a decision soon. I'm also waiting to see what will happen with this thing about the club possibly moving to PE. Look, there could be an option for me to coach within the development structures in future. But, as I said, I should next week something more concrete, you know."

The crew will monitor developments.
