Maritzburg announce Ofori’s replacement


Maritzburg United have announced the signing of Zambian goalkeeper Sebastian Mwange from Green Eagles, a few minutes after Orlando Pirates confirmed the arrival of Richard Ofori.

Mwange has penned a two-year deal at the Team of Choice with an option for a further two years on his contract.

The 28-year-old previously played for Zambian Super League teams Eagles and Nchanga Rangers and arrives on the same day that predecessor Ofori was unveiled by the Soweto giants, Pirates.

Mwange was in goal for Zambia recently when they beat Bafana Bafana 2-1 in an international friendly in Rustenburg.

He made his Zambia debut in 2019 during the COSAFA Cup and walked away with the Golden Glove award after helping Chipolopolo win the tournament.

“The Team of Choice are very pleased to have added a goalkeeper of Mwange’s calibre to our squad,” said Maritzburg Chairman Farook Kadodia.

“Our technical team and scouting network have worked tirelessly to identify Sebastian as a top quality goalkeeper and a good fit for our club. We are all very pleased to have secured his services.

“We would like to extend a warm welcome for Sebastian to the KwaZulu Natal capital city and are optimistic that his time here will prove to be fruitful.

“Maritzburg have shown that we have a solid record when it comes to bringing in players from the African continent and we expect Sebastian to continue this tradition and make a strong impact in South African football,” concluded Kadodia.
