Allie The Answer For Maritzburg?
Maritzburg United are believed to be considering a move for Bidvest Wits man, Nazeer Allie, as an experienced replacement for former captain, Bevan Fransman.
Fransman’s contract with Maritzburg expired yesterday after he declined to extend his stay with the Team of Choice, instead opting to make the switch to Highlands Park following their promotion to the Absa Premiership.
Given the fact that the former Bloemfontein Celtic man was one of the few players with lots of top-flight experience in Fadlu Davids’ young outfit, the club could well be on the lookout for a new player who can take his place in terms of a leadership role.
Siyanda Xulu has already been named as Fransman’s successor for the captain’s role, but with Allie thought to be available as a free agent following his expected exit from the Clever Boys, it is thought that he has made his way onto Davids’ radar.
As reported in this week’s issue of Soccer Laduma, Maritzburg could be weighing up possibly making a move for the ex-Ajax Cape Town man as they look to bolster their squad and try to improve on what was a record-breaking season in Pietermaritzburg in 2017/18.
