Makaringe Mix Up!
Despite reports stating that Fortune Makaringe was training with Bidvest Wits this week, Maritzburg United have stated that it is simply not the case.
The 25-year-old had a stellar season for the Team of Choice last time out as he played a massive role for the club in what was a club record-breaking season in Pietermaritzburg.
Interest has unsurprisingly grown for the Bafana Bafana international, and it had been suggested elsewhere that he had started training with the Clever Boys as he looked to try and land himself a contract.
The Siya crew, however, spoke to Quintin Jettoo, the club’s Football and Operations Manager, who denied the reports. He said, “ I don't know where people have heard that Makaringe is training somewhere else. He's a key player for us and he's not leaving. He's training with the team now. He remains a key player (in) our squad."
Makaringe, like his other international teammates, was given some extra time off by Fadlu Davids prior to starting the pre-season, however, are all now back to work as they prepare for the upcoming campaign.
