Leeuwenburgh – Could Be The Right Moment

Cape Town City goalkeeper Peter Leeuwenburgh has said that he is considering the idea of returning to Europe, if the right offer comes along in the near future.

The Dutch goalkeeper is his third season in South African, and in an exclusive interview in last week’s iDiski Times, he said that it might be the right time to return to Europe.

City have never stood in the way of a player moving, if the right offer comes along, and Leeuwenburgh admits he wouldn’t mind trying his luck back home again.

He also is a new father, and while he says he is not homesick, he says after the difficult year with Covid-19, it would be nice to be closer to his and his fiancee’s family.

“Yeah, I can’t say I’m not thinking about it,” Leeuwenburgh told Rob Delport in last week’s edition of iDiski Times.

“I’ve been here for now almost three years and when this season is done, and yeah, and if I stay fit, and I’ll play every game, then it’s like just over 90 games, 90 games and I’m 26.”

“So if I still want to achieve a bit more in my career, that could be the right moment to go back. Also with the baby now and you know, three years that far away from home and now not being able to have family over becauseof the lockdown and stuff , so that’ salso been over a year that it’s just the two of us.”

“So yeah, it’s tough. I can’t say I’m really homesick. But yeah, almost every month the feeling gets a little bit bigger. That’s like, it would be nice to have the family a bit closer.”
