MUFC BEEFS UP
26 January 2016
Maritzburg United FC have joined the game of musical chairs in the market by securing signatures of two players, a striker and a left back.
Gregory Maasdorp and Tumelo Mogapi who are both 27 years of age, have both joined the Team of Choice from Bloemfontein Celtic. Maritzburg United are determined to fight their way out of the relegation zone and depth will be very important in the process.
Tumelo who is a left back, is convinced that the club can survive relegation, and he is here “ukuzophakamisa iqembu” (to lift the team up). “The team plays well. I think we tend to relax in the second half and concede unnecessary goals,” said Tumelo, the man they call “Marcello”. “I just want to assure the fans that we will play every game to win. We will work hard as a team” he concluded.
Gregory, who plays in the striking position, is happy to link up with Ernst and Fadlu again. “I understand their philosophy, so I believe I will fit in easily,” said Greg. “I have watched the recent games the team played. Very dangerous on the counter. Against Sundowns, we need to play with commitment the way we played against Pirates. I am convinced that we are not in the relegation zone for long,” he added.
