New Maritzburg performance analyst happy to reunite with Middendorp


Maritzburg United have appointed video and performance coach analyst Pedro Ramos, who hails from Portugal.

The Portugal-born previously worked with coach Middendorp in Asia, when the two were at Bangkok United.

Ramos told the club website that he is looking forward to a successful stay in Pietermaritzburg as he teams up once more with Maritzburg United head coach Ernst Middendorp.

“My last team was Bangkok United in Thailand. I was there for two years and worked there also with coach Ernst,” Ramos said.

“Before joining Maritzburg, I worked for Cape Verde national team as a head of analysis.

“I’ve always had a good relationship with coach Ernst, he was always 100% professional with me,” he said.

“I like to work with him and here also I am feeling very comfortable with him here, so far all good.”

Coach Pedro is still settling down in the City of Choice, but says he’s been made to feel welcome.

“PMB, so far I don’t know too much of the city, my current life is here at the Harry Gwala Stadium my condominium.

“Regarding the people of PMB, I was well received by everybody. They are all funny guys and so far I like it here, the weather is good, it’s quite similar with the spring in my country, so far all good.”
