Rustenburg - Platinum Stars midfielder Solomon Mathe revealed that hanging up his boots is the last thing on his mind as he intends to continue his duties at Dikwena.

The longest serving Stars team member said he managed to keep his body in good shape due to his hard work at training despite him approaching his 36th birthday next week.

Mathe, 35, hinted that he will stay in the beautiful game for as long as he maintains his match fitness.

"It will depend on my match fitness and the body will tell," said Mathe.

"But at the moment I still feel fresh and I feel like I'm 26-years old. I think that this is the results of all my hard work and hard work pays.

"As long as I live a clean and healthy life and also keep my discipline I will keep playing football. The rest we'll see as times go on."
