THANKFULLY Maritzburg United was able to save their PSL status on the final day of the season.

Last Saturday the Team of Choice outsmarted Jomo Cosmos 3-1 in a game played at Olen Park Stadium in Potchefstroom. United came from 1-0 down to beat Cosmos.

As a passionate sports follower and supporter of all KwaZulu-Natal teams, I thank the Maritzburg United family, players, management, sponsors, supporters and coaches - you made us proud.

United’s season or campaign went horrible wrong from day one because the foundations and plans for the season were not there.

At first the technical staff, or the bench, were also suspect and could not trusted and United management was forced to sort out their technical staff. Whatever happened is now behind us and forgotten.

Let’s see United management now looking for quality players. They must sort out the technical bench if needs be and be ready for the next season, early.

Passionate KZN soccer followers and especially Pietermaritzburg residents are tired of watching lukewarm performances from the team who arguably only play to avoid relegation. We want to see a different, motivated and Maritzburg United with a winning mentality in the new season.
