Free State Stars assistant coach David Vilakazi believes club captain Paulos Masehe can still serve the team on the field for a further two years.
Masehe is yet to decide if he will retire at the end of the season, but has previously hinted that this could be final campaign on the pitch as the former Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates player looks to go into coaching.
The 35-year-old has made over 300 appearances and is considered one of the most consistent players in the PSL.
“I’m not sure about that one,” Vilakazi tells KickOff.com.
“I’m not sure he will retire because to be honest with you, the way I see him he can play one or even for two seasons more.
“The way he is training, he is training very, very well. I don’t think so, but it will be up to the club and the coach that will be leading the team that time. But the way I see him he is still doing very well. He can still play for two more seasons. But it will also depend on him if that is the case, but there is nothing really that is being said about him retiring. The way he is running I’m sure you watch some matches where he plays, he really outruns some of the young boys.”
