Maritzburg Confirm Two More Signings

Maritzburg United have confirmed two more signings ahead of the 2021/2022 DStv Premiership season.

The Team of Choice had already brought in Alfred Ndengane, Zukile Kewuti, Lifa Hlongwane and Rowan Human.

Now the club has added Ghanaian forward Richard Zumah, and utility player Brandon Theron to their books.

Zumah joins from Cote D’Ivoire club San Pedro, while Theron joins from Tshakhuma (Marumo Gallants).

“With Brandon Theron, it’s well known that he is a player with good skills, the ability to contribute to a good team performance, I think that’s very crucial,” Ernst Middendorp told the club’s website.

“Being able to provide flexibility in terms of the use – whether as a wing-back a full-back, or if you want to use him as a more attacking option. He’s an interesting player and we are very happy to have him here.

“Richard Zumah is quite unknown here, coming (originally) from Ghana. He played lately for San Pedro in the Ivory Coast, we followed him and we believe a player with his structure, with his style will fit our idea of playing.

“He’s just coming in, he needs some days, he’s still young and a player with a certain ability to improve and to fit in, in a proper way.

“We really worked on it in the background, not in public, over weeks to bring them in and get them here and we are very happy to have them as part of our squad.”

“We have been looking at players very closely, to ensure they suit the philosophy of the club and the coach’s approach for the new season,” added Farook Kadodia.

“We believe that the players we have signed will contribute to the kind of football Maritzburg want to play this season. We welcome them to the club and wish them all the best.”
