Maritzburg Exercise Option On Star Striker
Maritzburg United have followed up their success at the PSL Awards by exercising their option on star striker, Andrea Fileccia, as they keep him around for next season.
The 26-year-old scored nine goals in 2018 as he managed to take advantage of Evans Rusike’s exit for SuperSport United, playing a major role for the club as they achieved their highest league finish and narrowly missed out on the Nedbank Cup.
Fileccia, whose contract was due to expire at the end of the season, will not be on his way elsewhere though, with the Siya crew being informed that the Team of Choice have exercised their one-year option on the Belgian hitman.
There was talk of interest growing with regards to the forward from elsewhere in the PSL, however, this decision should put to bed any talk of him being on the move in the upcoming transfer window.
Maritzburg, however, are losing Bevan Fransman after he decided against signing a new contract at the club.
