Media reports recently speculated that both Rushine de Reuck and Richard Ofori, two players who have been massive performers this season, were due to join Orlando Pirates at the end of the season, but that report has been called ‘unsubstantiated and false’.

A statement from the club read, “It was written this week that the two standout performers are set to join another Premier Soccer League (PSL) club at the end of the season.

Not only are these stories completely unsubstantiated and false, but they are unsettling to the two players, their teammates, the coaching staff, club management, the supporters and everyone involved with the KwaZulu-Natal Capital City club.”

Meanwhile, the Team of Choice’s chairman, Farook Kadodia, was quoted as saying, "The club refutes all irresponsible media speculation regarding the transfer of its prized assets, Richard Ofori and Rushine De Reuck. 

"Certain journalists are placing the players under unnecessary pressure and linking the club to swap deals… The club would like to place on record that both players are not for sale. To date we have received a few inquiries from agents representing clubs abroad.

"The players are focused on extending the team's winning run and achieving a top-five finish. The players are contracted to Maritzburg United Football Club and we request that all clubs and media act responsibly and follow the required protocol. Our journey on growing the brand is our priority and we will not allow any detractors."
