Paulse considering retirement

Cape Town - Veteran Ajax Cape Town striker Nathan Paulse has revealed that he's started thinking about life after football.

The 34-year-old began his football career with the Urban Warrior back in 2001 and spent eight years at Ikamva before he left in 2008 to join Swedish side Hammarby IF.

Paulse made his debut for Hammarby in a 4-2 victory over Malmo the same day he was signed and scored his first goal for the club in the Swedish Cup quarter-finals against Valsta Syrianska IK two weeks later.

However, despite a successful first season, the former Bafana Bafana international failed to impress during the two following campaigns and, when Hammarby were relegated at the end of the 2009 season, he moved back to Ajax on a six-month loan in January 2010 with a buy-out clause.

"Obviously, it is the best decision for anyone in my age to be thinking about life after football now," Paulse told Goal website.

"I am under no pressure though, the club has assured me that my services are still of importance to the club, both on and off the field I am still a valuable member of Ajax Cape Town and I enjoy my role of sharing my experiences with the younger guys, guiding where I can and offering advice where necessary."
