JOHANNESBURG - Bidvest Wits get the domestic league season underway on Thursday night with a clash against Cape Town City at home.
This match will serve as a dress rehearsal for both teams, as they will meet in the MTN8 semifinals.
Steven Pienaar says he’s personally looking forward to facing Benni McCarthy.
“I’m looking forward to it. Obviously, we all want to win. I was told I’m in the cup as well so it’s a good chance for me to go to Cape Town.”
Pienaar says he knows that pressure is on him to perform.
“There’s always expectations, that’s why we’re playing professional football. You have to perform at every game… for me, it’s just to make sure that I stay fit and come to training with a smile on my face.”
Pienaar says he needs more game time to get his fitness back.
“Obviously, I have to work hard on training and get fit. There are two different kinds of fitness; you can train the whole year and don’t play in the games… you can still struggle.”
