‘I don’t want to waste Wits’ money’


The former Bafana Bafana defender recently penned a one-year deal (with the option for another year) with the Students after his contract ran its course with Ajax Cape Town.

Now 36, Booth acknowledges this could be his ‘last hurrah’ – and he says he plans to go out on a high.

“I’ve signed a one-year contract with a possible extension, but I’m not looking further than one year for now,” he tells KickOff.com.

“If I do play regularly, which I’m hoping to do, then certainly another season will be possible, but I don’t want to sit on the bench and waste money and go off on a sour note. After a long career you want to leave on a high.”

Booth had been back in Cape Town as part of Wits’ pre-season campaign and says it’s been a smooth transition slotting in at his new  club.

“It’s been like a fish to water really,” he says. “I’ve been made to feel very welcome, which is one of the most important things when moving to a new club. And I know quite a few of the players that are here.”
