Middendorp Downplays January Business
Posted: 25 January 2021
Record-time returning Maritzburg United head coach Ernst Middendorp has cast doubt on bringing in new faces at the club in this window.
The Team of Choice have somewhat looked thin in terms of bodies due to multiple players testing positive to COVID-19, nonetheless, the German said to The Beautiful Game;
“No, no, we have to understand that when I’m talking about options I’m saying that most of our players have tested positive, so they can’t really go in for a full ninety (90) minutes, you can see there is a concentration deficit.
“But it’s not always to bring somebody from the outside, what I mean is that from certain players we have experience, and from certain players they will progress.
“On the other side…Ja, what’s on the market? It’s not a lot, everybody is looking, everybody is looking for players who can produce a certain competition inside the squad, so at the moment I’m not really in the market,” he concluded.
The Durban-based are slowly making their way into the top eight and that’d be a good return for the club, considering the amount of talent at Middendorp’s disposal in this campaign.
