Although not a regular starter at Mamelodi Sundowns, Pieterse said he is happy to remain part of the team.

“I wrote a target list for myself and I feel like I am on the right track. There is still a long way to go, but I am setting small milestones and goals for myself to knock them down in the future,” Pieterse said.

“To be honest, everyone wants to be playing regular football, but when you have the likes of Denis, Ricardo and Kennedy that you are competing with, makes it really challenging but at the same time very good.

“I am still signed to Sundowns and I can’t think about going anywhere. They’ve just taken my option in my contract. I just want to focus on giving my best to the team.

“There have been some crucial games that they have given me, so it’s a sign that the coaches do trust me and they have mentioned that they see me as one for the future. It’s about applying that confidence and moving forward into the next season,” Pieterse concluded.
