Veteran defender Matthew Booth is gradually becoming worried about his future as his contract with Mamelodi Sundowns has still not been renewed.
Booth is recovering from a knee injury he picked up at the end of February during a League match against Bidvest Wits. At 34, Booth is aware of how difficult it will be to get another team if Sundowns do not renew his contract. “My contract is up at the end of June and I am waiting on Sundowns to let me know what is going to happen. I hope that they renew it because it will not be good if they don’t, as I am still injured,” says Booth. “I am having no holiday at all because I have to continue working through June. My plan is to be ready to join the rest of the squad for pre-season training. I am getting stronger with every gym session I attend and I have regained all the muscle I had lost. “While I think about my return from injury, it is equally important to worry about my contract,” the towering defender says. Sundowns are remaining quiet about player contract renewals as they first have to decide who will coach the team next season.
