Middendorp Given Ultimatum At Maritzburg
Maritzburg United FC boss, Farook Kadodia is said to have held a meeting with coach Ernst Middendorp to discuss the club’s performance and the current situation on the table.
According to TimesLIVE, the Germany mentor’s days at the club are now numbered, as he has been given a mandate of producing positive results in just four games.
Kadodia, though, believes Middendorp will find a way to turn things around when the second half of the campaign resumes.
The Team of Choice sit in 13th on the table and have accumulated 15 points – they have only won three, lost nine and drawn six from their 18 games this season so far.
“I did make it clear to the coach that the position we are in now is not acceptable, especially with the fact we’ve played 18 games,” Kadodia said per TimesLIVE.
“And also, I have worked with the coach on a number of occasions and I said that, ‘Listen, I just think we need to see exactly what went wrong and let’s see how we can put it right’.
“We brainstormed certain issues, and we think we can put those things right while also giving the coach that mandate that I’m not going to wait for four games, he’s got to turn it around.
“We’ve got three consecutive home games back from the break, and while they are tough games, I still believe the coach has the ability to turn it around.
“We went into a shell from about game three until games 16 or 17, and I think he needs a way of rectifying that. And I’m sure after my meeting with him, things will change a lot.”
The KwaZulu-Natal outfit will meet SuperSport United at Harry Gwala Stadium when the league resumes next month.
