TEAM OF CHOICE GET BIG MIDFIELD BOOST AS NTSHANGASE MAKES HIS STAY PERMANENT
24 September 2020
Maritzburg United are pleased to announce that central midfielder Phumlani Ntshangase has signed a two-year contract with a further one year option.
Ntshangase spent the 2019/ 20 season on loan with the Team of Choice and even though he missed a few months through injury, he made a sizable impact in the engine room for coach Eric Tinkler's side.
His ability to dictate the tempo of the game with his dynamic passing range and impressive game intelligence were an undoubted asset for the club.
And although the former SuperSport Untied and Bidvest Wits player is only 25-years-old and still approaching his peak, he will be looking forward to his eighth season in the top flight when the 2020/ 21 campaign kicks off.
He also knows what it takes to win trophies, with winners’ medals in the league, MTN8 and Telkom Knockout to his credit.
Maritzburg United Chairman Farook Kadodia has underlined why Ntshangase's decision to extend his stay with the Team of Choice is so important to the KwaZulu-Natal Capital City side.
"Phumlani comes with an enormous amount of experience which is a crucial ingredient in the centre of the park," the Chairman said.
"He impressed us all with his work-rate and professionalism, his reading of the game and composure in midfield. We believe he is a player who will certainly help us in our push for a strong top eight position next season."
Phumlani meanwhile is looking forward to continuing the strong relationships he has forged at the Team of Choice and hopes to play a part in a succesful future for the club.
"I'm so excited and happy to have signed my contract with the team," he said. "I had a great season with Maritzburg last season on loan. Now staying with the team permanently is a blessing with me.
"This is a great team, I enjoyed everything with the guys last season and I'm looking forward to continuing where we left off...hopefully we win some cups and we do well and get to achieve something this season."
