Maritzburg will not stand in Ofori’s way


Maritzburg United CEO Younis Kadodia says his club will not stand in a way of any player who wants to pursue greener pastures, provided the right procedures are followed.

Kadodia also confirmed to FARPost that Ofori’s one year option has been exercised by the ‘Team of Choice’.

“Yes, it’s correct…I think it’s something that happened just before the lockdown. It’s one more season,” said Kadodia.

Asked if that was done to fend off the interest from the likes of Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns who are believed to be interested the Ghanaian international, he replied: “I don’t think that’s a call I could make, obviously we want to keep him at Maritzburg.

“I think at this stage obviously there are rumours but yes, we haven’t received any formal offers for any players. So, I think the internet is one thing, offers are another, so interest via the media or offers via the club. I think we’ve never stopped any player in the past, and I don’t think we will stop anybody in the future.

“But I think at this stage it’s premature or speculate. I think once there are any offers obviously come true then we can caucus it and discuss something,” concluded Kadodia.
