Q&A WITH BRANDON ‘JUNIOR’ THERON
20 June, 2022
Maritzburg United midfielder Brandon Theron is using the off-season break to enjoy quality time with his family, especially his son.
During the season, there's not much time for the 29-year-old old and other footballers to be with their families and loved ones because of traveling and being away from home.
Junior's biggest highlight of the previous campaign was when he scored his first goal for the club on his debut in the KwaZulu-Natal Derby against Golden Arrows.
He had an exclusive interview with Maritzburg United media department where he revealed that one of his objectives is to help the side to become a top eight team.
Maritzburg United FC: How and where are you spending your off-season?
Brandon Theron: I’m spending most of the off-season with my mother and siblings and my very own son. I spent most of my time with my family and son because I hardly spend a lot of time with them - when the season starts I’m gone away from home.
MUFC: What challenges you faces last season and how did you manage to overcome them?
BT: I faced a lot of challenges but in difficult times I always reach out to the father God.
MUFC: What excited you the most last season and why?
BT: Just to be part of this lovely club excites me and since the day I came because I’ve always followed the club and the club has always been a club with good things.

BT: My debut was definitely my highlight…Because I scored my first goal for the club.
MUFC: What do you wish to improve on?

MUFC: Who you've been in contact with the most in the club? And how?

MUFC: What can you say to describe the feeling of playing in front of crowded Harry Gwala Stadium?
BT: Wow … I don’t think there are words that can describe those feelings…But it is a very amazing feeling.
MUFC: What can you say to summarize your previous season?
BT: It was an emotional season for me and also ups and downs But thank God we could pull through but it's a lesson we should learn and fix it in the new season.
MUFC: What can fans can expect from Junior next season?
BT: They can expect that I'll always give my all to them but on my game I'll try to get better stats than I had and to stay fit and injury free so that I can help my team to achieve our goals.
