NFD Focus: We'll Go To The Masses

In this week's edition of Soccer-Laduma, issue number 851, Richard Makhoba opens up to us about the takeover of National First Division side, United FC - with the NFD Focus brought to you by Lucky Star.

United FC COO, Richard Makhoba talks about the takeover of United FC by Garankuwa United owner Harold Motaung and the very good, experienced and balanced squad that has been assembled.

When asked about his thoughts of how laid back the chairman is, he said, "I think Harold likes not to be known but to be upfront. He put things in place and trusts his employees. For him it's more like "You guys have the knowhow to run the club."

Richard also shared his thoughts on the kind of person Harold Motaung is. "He's a very knowlegdeable chairman and a very astute businessman, who's clued up on the technical matters of football, and also understands the game from the human management side."

He also reveals that as from next season, the club will play under the Garankuwa United banner as it's approved by the PSL.

In addition, Richard further points out specific players who have taken strides in the team. " When Joshua Sauls came to us from Platinum Stars, he wasn't match fit. Now he's playing a major role , scoring goals. Lucky Khune also has an eye for goals. Edward Williams was given a defensive role which he's executing well. We also have the likes of Tshepo Moloto and Martin Moonsamy in defence and the experienced midfielder Alfred Lekata."

For Makhoba's full interview, check out the NFD Focus, brought to you by Lucky Star in edition 851.
