Maritzburg United goalkeeper Shu-Aib Walters has praised the work of United goalkeeper coach, Arthur Bartman, in helping him improve his game.

Bartman joined the Team of Choice in the pre-season from Kaizer Chiefs, after deciding to retire from playing.

Walters put in a Man of the Match display against Kaizer Chiefs on the weekend, however his heroics weren’t enough to stop United losing 2-0.

Nonetheless, the 31-year-old attributed his fine form to some of the work he is putting in on the training ground with Bartman.

He told the PSL after the game, "I think my mental state has changed this season. Obviously with the likes of Arthur Bartman, I'm on a different level. I think I've improved. It's sad that I had to work so hard [during the match], but at the end of the day I think they created enough chances to win the game.”

"Arthur told me before the game that I was going to work hard. I knew it. It was just a bit of luck there with the post and the ball falling for Knowledge Musona. And then a reaction save with the second goal, and luckily (for Chiefs) George Lebese was there.”

He added, "But yes, I think we will improve. We just need to get a little more solid in defence and we will improve.”
