Davids, who will still be feeling the disappointment of their Nedbank Cup final defeat over the weekend, has had an impressive first year as head coach of Maritzburg, setting a new club record for points and league position as well as securing a nomination for the Coach of the Season.

With numerous clubs in the Absa Premiership – including SuperSport United – on the lookout for a new head coach prior to the start of the 2018/19 season, there had been talk of a potential exit for the 37-year-old, but that doesn’t appear to be the case.

It has now been confirmed that Davids has put pen to paper on a new two-year contract with Maritzburg following their best ever season in the top-flight, committing his immediate future to the Pietermaritzburg-based outfit.

The Siya crew has also been informed that Davids, and his assistant, Maahier, have jetted out to Amsterdam for their UEFA A Licence course, with the coachign duo expected back on June 20th.

Meanwhile, however, he has been dealt a bit of a blow with regards to his backline following the news that Bevan Fransman would not be signing a new deal, with the veteran defender now on the hunt for a new club.
