Richard Ofori to work under new coach after Maritzburg sack coach Ertugral

Goalkeeper Richard Ofori will be working with a new coach at Maritzburg United after chairman Farook Kadodia confirmed they have parted ways with head coach Muhsin Ertugral.

Ertugral was appointed in December after the Team of Choice let go of Fadlu Davids and now barely a month into the new year, the bottom-of-the-table club has released another coach.

Ertugral leaves Maritzburg without winning a game. With him at the helm, Maritzburg lost four league matches in a row, against Golden Arrows, Free State Stars, Mamelodi Sundowns and Chippa United.

On Sunday they were knocked out of the Nedbank Cup by National First Division side Witbank Spurs, who are coached by former Bafana Bafana mentor Shakes Mashaba.
