Cape Town - Veteran
Bidvest Wits goalkeeper Moeneeb Josephs believes that recent signing
Steven Pienaar is a far more mature player than during their days
together at Ajax Cape Town.
The pair played together with the Urban Warriors before Pienaar
departed for Europe where he enjoyed huge personal success most notably
for English Premier League outfit, Everton.
However, now in the twilight of his career, the attacking midfielder
has since returned home and will now do duty for the Clever Boys in
2017/18 alongside Josephs.
Nonetheless, the shot-stopper believes a more experienced Pienaar
will add value to the defending Premiership champions. He told the Sowetan, "We played together at Ajax, but that time it was the circus Schillo - the guy who did all the tricks, the skilful Schillo.
"It's a more structured, more matured Steven Pienaar now. It's not
like he doesn't have the legs to keep going, but he understands the game
a bit more and he doesn't have to do that much running to move the ball
