A return to South Africa could be on the cards for Ernst Middendorp, according to sources in the know.

Middendorp’s last coaching stint in Mzansi was with Maritzburg United. He parted ways with the KwaZulu-Natal club in November last year.

The 59-year-old coach went on to join Bangkok United in Thailand, after leaving the Team of Choice. According to sources, the German mentor could return to the PSL to re-join the Pietermaritzburg outfit for a fourth stint.

Already in his career, Middendorp has had three different spells with Maritzburg – first from 2009, then in 2012 and from 2015 to 2016. 

The club’s current head coach, Fadlu Davids, has been under pressure in recent weeks for the team’s disappointing results.

Maritzburg have not won any of their eight games of their Absa Premiership campaign. The team’s last win in the league was in August, against Ajax Cape Town.

“Don’t be surprised if Ernst Middendorp returns to Maritzburg. He could return to the club as their new coach. Fadlu is under pressure to deliver results for the team,” said the source.

In June, the Siya crew reported that Middendorp was thought to be interested in returning to Mzansi.
