He spoke to Marketing and Communications Manager Brian Zuma.
Richard says he has been keeping an eye on United for some time already: “I’ve been following them since last year. The game in Cape Town against Cape Town City, I was there. When Rusike scored that free kick, I was there. They were playing very well and I said to myself I would love to be with this team. Here I am now with the team. I am hoping everything will go well for us.”
When asked about his national team experience and how he hopes to help youngsters in the team, Ofori responded by saying “I will need to show that experience by motivating the players. They play in front of me, I see everything that's happening. I have to motivate them, It’s all about team work. I can’t wait to go to training tomorrow and meet my new family.”
Talking about Maritzburg United fans he said “I have heard about them, they are very passionate. I ask them to keep supporting the club because at the end it’s not about us the players, it’s not about management, its about the family. It’s about Maritzburg. It’s about the City,” he concluded.
