Cape Town - Shu-Aib Walters left Maritzburg to join Mpumalanga Black Aces last week and has explained that he was keen to work under Muhsin Ertugral.

The experienced shot stopper suggested that he made the move to prepare for life after football.

“Maritzburg obviously wanted to keep me on board but I was looking for a new challenge that would help me going forward, not only playing but on the coaching side of things as well.

“I’ve worked under Ernst Middendorp and Steve Komphela so I thought that working with Muhsin would be good for my development.

Walters has a clear idea of where he wants to be after he retires and suggests that the move to Aces was in order to ensure that he could pursue a career that is still connected to football after retirement.

“I see Andre Arendse as my idol so I am looking to emulate him in the future in terms of coaching and working on TV and so being in Jo’burg I will have a better chance with that.

“I have set myself a two year plan and that is why I joined Aces because they could give me that, whereas Maritzburg only offered one year.”
