Cardoso has always featured prominently for the Free State club, when fit, but the prospect of being locked in another relegation battle with the team is weighing heavily on his mind and might eventually prove to be a determining factor when he eventually decides on whether he will extend his stay in Bethlehem.

"Regarding my contract, we will see what happens because I have a one-year option to renew," Cardoso told KickOff.

"Last year we (Free State Stars) battled a bit in the relegation zone and I don't want go back there so I'm pushing myself to get out of that position... otherwise we going to go back and suffer and we don't want that once again this season.

"I have been in the Free State for three years, so I need a new challenge and we will see what happens."

While he is thinking about his long-term future, Cardoso has reminded the football fraternity that he is still contracted to Free State Stars at this juncture, suggesting that the primary objective, for the moment, would be to help the club avoid relegation.

"I'm not disturbed and I'm fully committed to Free State Stars and I want to do the best I can," he added.
