SUPPORT AT HOME KEEPS US GOING — MNGONYAMA
19 April 2017
Maritzburg United has won the last three games on the trot at home, much to the appreciation of fans who never disappoint with attendance each time the Team of Choice plays at Harry Gwala Stadium.
Maritzburg supporters are among the most supportive fans in the PSL, even when the team is not doing well as was demonstrated in the dreaded 2015/16 season.
Kwanda Mngonyama, the dependable and versatile defender, is pleased that finally they are able to make their fans happy at home,
“Playing at home motivates us a lot as players because of the support and love the fans give us. We are excited with the home results of late because we were able to give back to our fans.”
Asked if they can add more wins with three home games remaining this season, he said “I am confident that we can stretch it further. I trust my team mates on that one. We have young players who are hungry to do well, guided by senior players who are equally committed. We work as a unit and fight for each other.”
Kwanda scored the first goal when they beat Baroka FC 3-1 last Friday at home, which earned him praise from his Coach and Captain.
About that he said “I was obviously very happy with the goal. We have a responsibility to defend and to attack as a team. With every game I give my all, I love football and whenever I play, it’s not about me, it’s about the team."
He also heaped praises on his Coach saying “Coach Fadlu understands us very well and we understand him too, as players, as brothers and as sons. He manages us very well, keeps us awake and has instilled an understanding that we are here to work, and work hard.”
The team of Choice travels to Port Elizabeth to take on Chippa United next Tuesday before returning home on Workers Day to welcome league contenders, Cape Town City.
