Maritzburg Confirm New Captain

Maritzburg United have confirmed a new captain for the 2021/2022 DStv Premiership season.

The Team of Choice have announced that Phumlani Ntshangase will lead the team, and the 26-year-old is looking forward to the job.

“I’m thankful first of all for being granted the opportunity to be one of the leaders for the coming season,” Ntshangase told the club’s media department.

“I’m excited, but also not really nervous. Because I know what it comes with to be the leader – it comes with hard work, focus, because you must lead by example, to all of the guys.

“And also learn from them, listen to them. Because by age there are others who are older than me.

“But there are also a lot of youngsters coming up into the first team. It’s a big opportunity for me and I’ll take it with both hands.”

The former Bidvest Wits player, who also spent a season on loan at SuperSport United, has spent the past two seasons in Pietermaritzburg.
