Pienaar, who recently announced his retirement from professional football after a half season with South African champions Bidvest Wits, made over 200 appearances for Everton across two spells with the club, 2007-2011 and 2012-2016.

Speaking of his new role, Pienaar told Everton’s official website: “I have felt enormous affection for the Club since the day I first signed and I am both honoured and delighted to become an official International Ambassador.

“Everton Football Club is very special to me and I look forward to further developing our unique bond in my new role and helping to spread the word of its fantastic work.

“This is a very proud day for me and I am delighted to be returning to a club that made me feel so welcome as a player.”
