Pieterse at a crossroads

Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Reyaad Pieterse is at a crossroads and might have to consider leaving the Soweto giants, according to his agent.

The 22-year-old has under two years left on his deal with Amakhosi, whom he joined after a spell at Irish club Shamrock Rovers in 2013.

Pieterse has been in and out of the Chiefs first-team squad in the two seasons he has been at Naturena, but his representative, Eduane Naude, reckons it might be time to think about regular game-time.

"Pieterse has another one year and eight months left of his contract with Kaizer Chiefs," Naude told Football 411.

"Reyaad is a very exciting, young and talented goalkeeper and unfortunately he simply isn't receiving any playing time at Kaizer Chiefs. He desperately needs to be playing and gaining vital match experience.

"We are at this point considering exploring a possible loan deal which will see Reyaad on the field rather than off it. There are also European possibilities which we are considering for him."

He added: "No decision has been made on either of these as yet but we are exploring various options for Reyaad as it doesn't seem likely that he will receive much needed game time at Kaizer Chiefs, purely because of the excellent form Brillaint Kuzwayo has been in of late.

"This is further impacted by the imminent return of Itumeleng Khune which will most likely see Reyaad out of the squad, if past experience is anything to go by. We simply want the very best for Reyaad and that means playing time."

Pieterse has yet to make an appearance for the first team this term, but has been a regular feature with the reserves in the Diski Challenge.
