The Cape Town midfielder Tyren Arendse says he has not made up his mind about his playing future

Arendse has taken on the coaching role at Santos during preseason, as they prepare for life in the SAFA Western Cape’s ABC Motsepe League.

The 36-year-old, who has CAF C license, was quick to explain that he was not formally appointed as the team’s head coach.

“It’s not official yet,” said the 18-year veteran, who also represented Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns between his two stints with Santos.

“I’m not the office type, coaching is something that I definitely want to pursue. I’ve been planning it, I’ve already done my D and C license, which is the first two steps. The next one is obviously the B license.

“It’s just another challenge for me, which is something that I like. The office is not for me, I need to be on the field, whether playing or on the sidelines, that’s where I need to be.”

He added: “The body is still feeling good, so you never know; (but) I haven’t made a final decision yet.”
