ALLIE WANTS TO GO DOWN IN THE MARITZBURG HISTORY BOOKS
     
   
 

Making history with the club, and rewarding the supporters, are amongst Maritzburg United captain Nazeer Allie's primary driving forces for Saturday's Telkom Knockout final against Mamelodi Sundowns.

     
 

 

The final takes place at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban (6pm), with a large contingent of United supporters expected to be in the stands donning the blue of the Team of Choice.

 

Allie is respectful of the Brazilians’ quality, but also points out that finals are unpredictable, and to an extent a leveller, and that’s it’s often about which set of players are most up for the challenge on the day.

“We know Sundowns are a very good team, the best in South Africa, that’s why they have been playing in the Champions League,” the steely defender said.

 

“We’ll have our plan on the day, but in a final it can go either way. So we have to go out there and enjoy it and give our all.

 

“It’s 50/ 50 on the day – it’s about who wants it more, who can come up with individual brilliance, who can take their chances. Who’s prepared to go that extra mile and put their bodies on the line.

 

“I want to be part of the history at Maritzburg United, so hopefully we can do that on Saturday,” he stated.

 

In the past 19-months, Maritzburg supporters have witnessed their team finishing fourth in the league, losing a cup final and also narrowly avoiding relegation via the play-offs - come rain or shine, good times or bad, they’ve been there for the team.

 

And Allie, who won the Telkom Knockout two years ago with Bidvest Wits, would like nothing more than to make sure that the fans go home happy on Saturday night.

 

“It will be a great achievement for the club, and also for the fans, who come week-in, week-out supporting us. So we will be grateful to give them a cup on Saturday,” said the 34-year-old.
