Cape Town - Former Bafana Bafana defender Nasief Morris has urged Ajax Cape Town defender Rivaldo Coetzee to bide his time for a European move.
Morris feels the 19-year-old South Africa international must resist the urge to join one of the 'big three' Premiership clubs as it may affect his chances of playing European football.
"When you grow up, you will always have that goal of breaking into your club's first team, or to play in the PSL and Bafana. For me it's always been Europe and that is what I wanted," the former Panathinaikos centre-back told Goal.com website.
"Before I made the move to Europe I had an offer to join Orlando Pirates, Irvin Khoza (Pirates chairman) actually spoke to me himself but I had to tell him look, I don't mean to disrespect or anything but I would like to go to Europe instead.
"I did that because I had set myself targets and that was to go to Europe. I think that someone like Rivaldo has the ability and the talent to make it in Europe and he just needs to set himself targets that are higher than the PSL.
"With his ability he could go far with his career because he still has the age on his side, but is he ambitious enough?"
Since making his debut for Bafana as a 17-year-old, Coetzee has amassed 19 caps, forming a solid partnership alongside Kazier Chiefs defender Erick Mathoho.
