Maritzburg United chairman Farook Kadodia has explained why the club hired Ernst Middendorp to be their head coach following the sacking of Eric Tinkler.
“We extend a warm welcome home to Ernst and we look forward to renewing what has always been an amicable relationship,” Kadodia told the club’s official website.
“At this point, after a tough start to the season, some stability is crucial. With Ernst knowing the club inside out, understanding the culture of the team, we are confident that he’s the best man for the job and will be able to hit the ground running.
“We believe his temperament, his intricate knowledge of our club, and his vast experience over many years in the Premier Soccer League, is what the team needs right now.
“We trust that together with Ernst, everyone at the club will work hard and pull together in the same direction to get this season back on track.”
