Cape Town - University of Pretoria captain Tebogo Monyai has announced his retirement from football after fulfilling his promise to the club to play one more season.

AmaTuks were relegated to the NFD after Highlands Park won the playoffs to gain top flight promotion.

The 36-year-old guided AmaTuks to the Premiership in 2012 and will now take up a management position at the club.

"We still have a game to play on Wednesday. That would be my last game as a player. I will be meeting with the management soon to map a way forward. I am ready to stay in the club but in a different role," Monyai told KickOff.

Speaking of Tuks chances of bouncing straight back to the South African topflight, Monyai admitted it would be tough.

"It's going to be tough especially with the Under-23 rule. But if we can get things right, I have no doubt we will bounce back to the PSL very soon."
