Davids: We Won’t Sell To Chiefs, Pirates Or Sundowns
Maritzburg United Won't Be Selling To Kaizer Chiefs, Mamelodi Sundowns Or Orlando Pirates
Fadlu Davids has issued a strong statement regarding the talented players in the Maritzburg United squad, saying categorically that no players ‘will be leaving to the big three’.
The Team of Choice have had a fantastic season in 2017/18, putting in a number of impressive performances and setting several new club records along the way as they guaranteed a top five spot.
Now, as they start their preparations for next season, their young head coach says that their focus is on keeping their players together – not selling them to the highest bidder among Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns.
He told the club’s official website, “We’ll do our planning for next season in the next few weeks. I think the main thing for us will be to keep all our players. After our initial meetings with the chairman, that will happen, unless European clubs come knocking, you don’t want to then stand in the players’ way.
“None of them will be leaving to the big three; I think that’s the main focus, to keep our players together.
“There are some players who have left who have not yet been replaced, so definitely we will be in the market to strengthen, there’s no pressure yet for next season, we still have to complete this season.”
The likes of Siphesihle Ndlovu, Lebogang Maboe and Fortune Makaringe have all attracted interested with their performances throughout the course of the campaign, although the club does have long-term contracts on all of their star players.
