Maduka led Royal AM to a third-place finish last season, and his exit from Shauwn Mkhize’s club took many by surprise.

The former Bloemfontein Celtic coach made the move to KwaZulu-Natal a year ago when AM bought Celtic’s top-flight status and relocated the team.

As reported earlier by iDiski Times, Maduka will be assisted by former Celtic colleague, Ditheko Mototo.

Maduka has signed a three-year contract, i.e. until June 2025.

“”It is a huge honour for me to represent and coach a club with the tradition and support base of Maritzburg United. I am very excited to get started. After discussions with the Chairman and the Board, I felt their passion, ambition and desire to be successful and I feel my ambition, together with my work ethics, can work to achieve the desired results for the club,” Maduka was quoted as saying by the club’s media department.

“Upon each visit to the Harry Gwala Stadium one can feel the passion that the “Blue Army” have for this club and this support will be hugely important for the team in the upcoming season.”

“This is a wonderful opportunity, but there is also a lot of work ahead of us and I am eager to get onto the training ground to start working with the players.”

“I would like to thank the club’s owners for this opportunity for the incredible welcome they have already given me. I am very excited to begin our journey together.”
