Cape Town - New Bidvest Wits signing Granwald Scott admits making the decision to return to South Africa from Slovan Bratislava was difficult for him to make.

The 29-year-old left Ajax Cape Town in 2015 following an 12-year spell with the Cape Town outfit. The defensive midfielder failed to cement a starting-berth with the Slovakian side during his two years there and subsequently returned home.

"Leaving Slovakia was not an easy choice, but ultimately one that had to done," he told Soccer Laduma.

"It was difficult for me to adapt there after having lived in one city for 28 years of my life and playing for one club for 12 of those years.

"The main reason I left, though, was because I was not playing regularly and I feel the older you are, the more regular football you should be playing if you want to have a long career.

"I intend to keep on playing until I feel that I can't anymore, and I don’t want to be forced.

"Also, as they say, 'home is where the heart is'," he concluded.
