Ofori: It’s up to management to determine my future


Maritzburg United goalkeeper Richard Ofori says it is up to his management to decide where he would be playing next season.

The 26-year-old Ghanaian still has a year remaining on his contract with the ‘Team of Choice’.

“I work with management and I work with people around me. Normally, people say the decision is for the player but from my side, I have a management that decide which team I can join,” Ofori told reporters yesterday.

“The decision is not for me. I leave everything to them, and I will take it from there.”

Ofori has managed ten clean sheets and conceded 17 goals this season. Before being linked a move, there was interest from Belgium, which was declined by the club last year.

“I can say as a player that anywhere you play; you can improve. It depends on the mindset and how do you do your thing,” he added.

“It is not everyone who can play in Europe. I don’t focus much on going to Europe because I need to focus on what I have at hand. I’m playing in South Africa, so I don’t think about going to Europe.”

Ofori was asked about the rumours of leaving the ‘Team of Choice’, however, he insisted that he hasn’t lost focus.

“As a sportsman, if you are doing something good people will talk about you and it is a positive thing for a player. It doesn’t mean I should lose focus.

“The most important thing is, I am a Maritzburg United player and I still have a contract with them. I have not heard anything from management, only just rumours,” he stated.
