Umoya rope in ex-SSU and Ajax man

Pietersen started training with Umoya (formerly known as Platinum Stars) after Ajax Cape Town decided against retaining his services at the end of last season following their relegation to the NFD.

The 29-year-old, who can play in defence and midfield, resurrected his career at Ikamva over the past two years after a challenging spell battling with injury.

Umoya coach Roger de Sa previously worked with the former SuperSport United man at the Urban Warriors.

De Sa's side will begin their bid for an immediate return to the topflight against TS Galaxy at Kameelriver Stadium on Sunday.
