Cape Town - Veteran AmaZulu striker Siyabonga Nomvethe says he will continue to play at the highest level as long as his legs can carry him.

The 40-year old striker said he did not expect to be still playing Absa Premiership football at his age, but is happy to continue serving the beautiful game.

The former Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates striker believes only injuries can make him to consider retiring as he still feels strong enough to continue playing for another two years.

He said he was happy to start the match against Pirates over the weekend playing for 73 minutes, but was disappointed to end up on the losing side.

Nomvethe told SuperSport: "It was amazing for me because I did not expect the coach to give me the opportunity from the first minute.

"I have to thank God because the way I’m performing, I didn’t expect to reach this age and still be playing.

"I have to show the young boys that football is all about love, you know. I have to do something that will make them happy.

"No, the way I keep going, you know. I do not know because it’s a gift from God, maybe I can say another two, three seasons to go.

"If it’s not going to happen like I break my legs, I will keep going and show the young boys."

AmaZulu next face rock-bottom side Platinum Stars in a league clash on April 25 at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium.

Kick-off is at 19:30.
