CHAIRMAN: PLAYERS HAVE COPED AS BEST THEY CAN
 
 
 

Club chairman Farook Kadodia has spoken of the challenges faced by the team last week in
the wake of midfielder Mlondi Dlamini's tragic passing.

   
 

Dlamini, who had represented the national U20 side and who was in the process of breaking into the Maritzburg United first team, had his life cut short at only 20-years-old after he was killed in a motor vehicle accident in the early morning of last Sunday.

 

Having had their request to the league for a postponement of the Chippa United match turned down, Kadodia says there has been little option but to get on with things as best as possible.

 

"The players have adjusted to the situation over the week, and I think Mlondi's Memorial Service and also his funeral on Saturday helped them with the process," he said.




"Of course there are many feelings that I can't express, locked inside the players' chests. But from an outward appearance, they have coped well with a very difficult situation.

 

"We tried to deal with the situation as best we could. Including bringing in a clinical physiologist who assisted the players. We are hoping for the best from the players in the game and I'm sure that they will play especially for the memory of the late Mlondi Dlamini," the Chairman concluded.

 

Be sure to get behind the team when they take on the Chilli Boys in Port Elizabeth on Wednesday night.
