KURT AND MARITZBURG UNITED PART WAYS
 
 
 
Midfield Kurt Lentjies will no longer turn out in the Team of Choice colours after deciding to part ways with Maritzburg United.
   
 

The skillful playmaker and captain, who has been with the Team of Choice for overall six seasons, leaves the club he has helped to save from relegation and to achieve historic results during the time he was the skipper.

 

He is leaving Maritzburg United to join Chippa United in the Eastern Cape as of the 3rd of July. "I have been here for six seasons and I believe it's time for change. There was a further one year option to renew, but we agreed that it's best that I move on.

 

"Eastern Cape is closer to my home in Cape Town, which makes it an advantage for me and my family," he said.

 

"I am happy with what I achieved with Maritzburg United. I will never forget the fight from relegation against Cosmos, and last season's achievement will be my highlight here,” added Kurt.

 

He also had a message for the fans saying, "Thank you for the support. When we only won two games at Harry Gwala the year we almost got relegated, they still stood behind us and came in numbers. Thanks for the love and the boos (he laughed). I will miss the fans."

 

The Chairman Mr Farook Kadodia expressed his gratitude for the contribution Kurt made to the Maritzburg United brand.

 

"Kurt has been a very good ambassador for the Maritzburg United brand. As Captain he led from the front and made a significant contribution with the club achieving historic results. Unfortunately in football, there are no permanent stays. I wish him well for the future with his new club," concluded the Chairman.
