Maritzburg United can beat relegation drop - Richard Ofori

Maritzburg United goalkeeper Richard Ofori is upbeat about their chances of maintaining their top-flight status.

With 9 matches to go, Maritzburg United need a quick turnaround if they want to remain in the Absa Premiership after enduring a turbulent campaign.

The Team of Choice are at the bottom of the log with just 14 points from 21 matches.

But Ofori believes they have the requisite power to turn their season around and beat the relegation drop.

"Our current situation is very worrying but I am sure we will not be relegated at the end of the season," he told

He added, "We the playing body aren’t happy about our position on the league game and so we are working very hard to ensure we win most of the remaining matches and at the end maintain our spot in the league."

"The supporters have been so much supportive despite our bad form and we hope they continue with that to enable us achieve our target of avoiding relegation. We want to be in the league and make them happy come next season."

"It’s good that some clubs are interested in my services but for now I want to help the team to beat relegation afterwards we will see what will happen.’’

Ofori has been heavily linked with a move to giants Orlando Pirates.
