Maritzburg United have continued their restructuring ahead of their return to the PSL, writes LUNGANI ZAMA.

United’s team manager, Quinton Jettoo, told The Witness that the Maritzburg club have retained the services of star defender Peter Petersen for another three seasons.

The energetic right back, who played a prominent role in United’s promotion charge, said he was pleased to extend his stay with the Maritzburg club.

“It’s great that we are back in the PSL, and hopefully we can approach it with the same attitude we had in getting promoted,” Petersen said.

Jettoo also confirmed the appointment of Clinton Larsen as coach Gordon Igesund’s assistant. Larsen, a former Bafana Bafana midfielder, has previously played under Igesund, winning PSL titles at Manning Rangers and Orlando Pirates with United’s new coach.

Larsen has already started working with the squad as their preparations for the new season continue.
