Mamelodi Sundowns' Matthew Pattison explains trial at Dynamo Moscow

The South Africa international is looking to solidify a few options in Europe for the future, hence his trial in Russia last month
Matthew Pattison says the trial he underwent at Dynamo Moscow was basically to open up his options, especially with his future at Mamelodi Sundowns in serious doubt.

Pattison was on trial at the Russian club for three days in October and told that he is not expecting feedback from Moscow.

"The trial was not necessarily to get a move right away, but to open up my options. We will only discuss possible moves at the end of the season," Pattison said.

If anything, Moscow will only recall the 24-year-old for further assessments at the end of the season.

The former Newcastle United midfielder has made three substitute appearances for Sundowns this season and with his contract running out at the end of June 2012, Pattison intends to leave ‘The Brazilians'.
