The 33-year-old joined the Glamour Boys in 2007 from Free State Stars and has picked up two league titles, including the Telkom Knockout (2007, 2010, 2011), MTN8 (2008, 2014) and the Nedbank Cup (2013).

He has also made 91 appearances for the national side and returned to the Bafana Bafana setup last year for a crucial World Cup qualifier after a three year absence.
