MARITZBURG UNITED MULTICHOICE DISKI TEAM IN TOP FIVE
27 February 2017
The Team of Choice’s MultiChoice Diski side finished fifth in this season’s campaign, ending up with 28 points, the same number of points obtained by both fourth ( Kaizer Chiefs) and third (Highlands Park) teams, and six points behind Champions Sundowns who finished with 34 points.
The boys lost three games, drew four and won eight, beating current champions Sundowns and last season’s champions Arrows among others. Head Coach Mahier Davids is happy with what was achieved.
“We had a successful season during which we exceeded our expectations. You have to consider that players like Bandile Shandu, Mohau Mokate, Lebohang Maboe and Siphesihle Ndlovu all started the season playing in MDC, but are now regulars in the first team. You also have Mlondi Dlamini who made his first team debut against Supersport and Luyanda Ntshangase who is in the National under 20 set up” remarked Davids.
Communication Manager Brian Zuma said: “The MDC is working well for us. It’s a production machine. I think it will work wonders for teams, especially those like us who lack sponsorship, if we invest strongly in the Diski Teams.
“We are getting good returns on investment already. I mean Luyanda and Siphesihle are 20 years old, Lebo and Bandile are 22, what more can you ask for?”
