Middendorp Sends A Strong Message To Opponents!

Maritzburg United head coach Ernst Middendorp sent a strong warning to DStv Premiership teams who are planning to undermine them this season.

The Team Of Choice just about survived being relegated last season and as a result, Middendorp has been receiving a lot of criticism regarding the team's performance.

However, addressing the media after winning KZN Premier’s Cup, the German mentor said that he wasn't stressing about what people are saying about him and sent a strong message to his critics ahead of the new campaign.

"I cannot control the opinions of other people, I have 27 years experience in this game, probably in the early years of my coaching career but I can assure you that in the past 20 years my performances don't get defined by other people's opinions,” Middendorp told the media.

"I know what I'm doing and I don't care what other people are saying. Good luck to other teams against me. 

"I can't talk about last season. It's not easy to play with any team in the DStv Premiership, the league is very competitive, it's no longer easy, But I don't stress about what next team I will be facing, it can either be a strong Mamelodi Sundowns or any other team.”

Maritzburg will open their season against Lamontville Golden Arrows this weekend.
