Pieterse: People Often Wonder Why I Joined Sundowns

Former Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper, Reyaad Pieterse, has revealed why he decided to join Mamelodi Sundowns, after parting ways with SuperSport United at the end of last season.

Pieterse has played two Absa Premiership matches for Downs so far this season, as he competes with Kennedy Mweene and Thela Ngobeni for the team's number two goalkeeping position, with the number one position currently belonging to Denis Onyango.

“It’s been really good. I have enjoyed myself, learning from the likes of Denis, Kennedy, Thela and obviously coach Wendell Robinson,” Pieterse told Sundowns' official website. 

“People often wonder why I joined Sundowns. It’s a team with a lot of top goalkeepers who are experienced. I am always willing to learn and grow. I came here because I wanted to learn, grow and win trophies,” he added.

In his first official match for Sundowns, the 26-year-old shot-stopper conceded three goals as the Brazilians drew their Absa Premiership clash with AmaZulu 3-3 in KwaZulu-Natal in September.  

“The game against AmaZulu wasn’t really the greatest debut for me but the coach really backed me and believed in me to give me game-time against Golden Arrows in the following match. That says a lot about the coach and the team, that they are willing to give you a chance to redeem yourself and show your potential,” added Pieterse.
