Pienaar has found a new career in television broadcasting. debuting over the Easter weekend as a pundit on the English Premier League’s own channel‚ he is set to become a regular on the channel‚ which is broadcast on SuperSport 3.
“As a player‚ you obviously don’t realise the depth of work that goes into preparing for these programmes and for live TV – it was a real eye opener and extremely enjoyable. Premier League Productions‚ as you’d expect‚ do things on a top level in terms of professionalism and to be part of that was great,” he said on his first try at broadcasting.
“My aim is continue doing media work both in the UK and South Africa – it’s a fantastic platform and way to stay close in and around the game.
