Johannesburg - Following their promotion to the Absa Premiership on Wednesday, long-serving Jomo Cosmos midfielder Bamuza Sono has confirmed that he will not hang up his boots as he intends to continue stabilising the Ezinkosi team in top flight football.

The 35-year-old industrious midfielder has been with Cosmos for the past 12 years and he believes the youthful Cosmos team needs to settle first in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) before he calls it a day.

Sono believes the young stars will learn a lot from his experience going forward.

“I still have to sit down with the club president to discuss my future,” said Sono.

“I still have to discuss with my mother who is also my agent and I think it will be good to have a talk about everything as a family.

“But speaking of the legs they are still there, the hunger is still there and the heart is still there too.

“But personally for me I think one more season would be okay.

“I still need to stabilise the team in the PSL because looking at the current crop of players, I’m the only one who has been here for the past 12 years.

“And the young stars can learn a lot from my experience.”
