ALLIE AND OFORI TO LEAD THE TEAM OF CHOICE
     
   
 

Nazeer Allie has been appointed Maritzburg United club captain for the 2019/20 season, with goalkeeper Richard Ofori being handed the responsibility of match-day skipper.
     
 

 

Having boosted the depth in the squad with nine new signings, there will be additional competition for places in the starting XI within the Team of Choice this season.

 

It was for that reason that it was decided to appoint dual captains, as head coach Eric Tinkler explained.

 

“We are going to have our match-day captain which will be Richard Ofori,” he said.

 

“Like I said before, there is very little guarantee to any player that he will be in the starting line-up – that’s the type of competition we want to create.

 

“So selecting a captain was always going to be difficult. Richard, a national team goalkeeper for Ghana, is definitely our first-choice goalkeeper, so it made sense to appoint Richard as our match-day captain.

 

“Then we have the club captain. Who plays even more of an important role because he is representing the players to the club and also to me. And that person will be Nazeer Allie. Because of all his experience.”

 

Allie made his Premier Soccer League debut back in 2005 for Ajax Cape Town and joined Maritzburg from Bidvest Wits ahead of the 2018/19 campaign. He has played a key role in defence for United, especially towards the latter stages of last season.

 

The Team of Choice begin their season on August 4, with an Absa Premiership KZN derby away at Golden Arrows.
