Cape Town - AmaZulu striker Siyabonga Nomvethe's retirement plans may be put on hold, by a further six months until the end of the current Absa Premiership season, according to reports on Friday.

SowetanLIVE reports that the 41-year-old, who announced that he would be retiring at the end of December, may now extend his stay at Usuthu until the end of the 2018/2019 campaign.

Nomvethe, who is the PSL's all-time leading goalscorer had made a formal announcement in September that he would be bringing an end to his career spanning over two decades.

"It's time for the youngsters to take over. Football is about playing with the heart," said the forward.

"I have done my part. I am very happy. It is time to say goodbye"

Nomvethe has contributed with two goals so far this season having scored in AmaZulu's recent 3-0 win over Bloemfontein Celtic in an Absa Premiership clash on Wednesday.
