Veteran striker Henrico Botes is currently training at University of Pretoria as he weighs up his options.
Botes linked up with the NFD club last week following the non-renewal of his contract at Platinum Stars.
“I asked Shaun Bartlett if I could come and train and he said yes. So I am keeping fit with them for now. I have been with them for a week and a half,” Botes tells KickOff.com.
“I obviously still want to play and I have actually been in talks with prospective clubs and nothing is concrete just as yet. At the same time I have also been busy with my CAF C licence coaching licence because coaching is an option that I am considering.
“We are obviously in a country where your age is always looked at first before your performance so that is also playing a role with regards to me.
“I am obviously in the older bracket in football playing terms but then I have been taking good care of myself. The difference is always on how you look after yourself through all that you do as a player,” explains Botes.
Botes – who turns 38 this year – made 29 appearances for Dikwena last season with a return of four goals.
