IN TOUCH WITH: MIGUEL TIMM
30 April 2020
In Thursday's edition of our Q&A series, we put our industrious central midfielder Miguel Timm under the spotlight.
Timm, 28, arrived from Chippa United in January 2019 and has proved to be an astute signing by Maritzburg United.
He previously played for Bidvest Wits, Mpumalanga Black Aces and Phoenix Rising in the United States.
The Durban-born Timm has added considerable steel to the Team of Choice's engine room, from where he reads the game superbly and pulls the strings with his passes.
Always committed 100% on the field, Miguel is equally committed off the park right now as he keeps himself fit, studies online, home-schools his daughter and stays in touch with his team-mates.
MUFC: Where are you spending the lockdown?
Miguel Timm (MT): I’m in Joburg with my wife and daughter.
MUFC: How are you keeping busy?
MT: Daily workout, online classes, school work with my daughter and watch the news.

MUFC: Have you ever imagined life without football? And what would you have done for a career had you not been a footballer?

MUFC: In which match do you feel you played your best?

MT: Second goal Telkom semi-final (Judas Moseamedi), Thabiso Kutumela’s equalizer against Stellenbosch in the Nedbank Cup. Chiefs away (both goals). All team goals are the best especially Yusuf Jappie’s bender (free kick against Polokwane City).
