Veteran defender Rooi Mahamutsa is remaining positive during lockown and says he will continue to play football for as long as possible.

The 38-year-old former Orlando Pirates and Free State Stars defender joined Ajax Cape Town in February on a short-term deal until the end of the season.

He had been without a club since leaving Ea Lla Koto in 2019 and was yet to feature for Ajax before all sporting activities were suspended as a result of the coronavirus.

Speaking to the Sowetan, the experienced centre-back said: "I always have a positive mind. I always see positivity out of all situations. Whatever happens, happens, I'll take it and move forward.

"So far I can't predict what will happen [with his future at Ajax], but I am really positive that I'll stay and contribute to the team."

He added: "I still have a lot of football in my body. I still want to offer more to South African football.

"Football is something I love so much, so I'll continue playing as long as I can."

Ajax entered the enforced break on top of the GladAfrica Championship, with 24 games played, seven points clear of second placed Swallows FC.
