Goalkeeper Richard Ofori has revealed that he turned down an offer to play for Mamelodi Sundowns in 2017 because he was not guaranteed a playing time.

Ofori had a successful trial at the Chloorkop-based from Ghana Premier League side Wa All Stars but opted to sign for Maritzburg United.

"I first came here for trials at Sundowns and after they gave me that opportunity they decided they would sign me, but because of (no guaranteed) game-time I then came to Maritzburg. I have obviously grown-the Richard that came to South Africa three years ago is not the Richard that you see now,'' Ofori revealed in a virtual press conference."

"I have the experience and I know how things are done now, so automatically I won't be the same player," he added.

"But the most important thing is that now I am enjoying my time here at my current club-I can't talk much about what the future holds, I am concentrating more on Maritzburg United."he concluded.
