Maritzburg United chairman Farook Kadodia has confirmed that there is an interest in his goalkeeper Richard Ofori from a Belgian club.


Ofori has been one of the best performers for the club in the past few seasons, especially helping the club to retain the Premier Soccer League (PSL) status in the previous term, but it looks like he could leave at the end of the season.

According to the chairman, any decision to part ways with their shot-stopper in future would be releasing him to a club where they believe his career will develop to become one of the best goalkeepers around.

He stressed that there is no concrete offers as at now.

“There’s some interest from Belgium for Ofori. But first I need to clarify this. Ofori is not in the last year of his contract. He still has one more year left at the club,” Kadodia said as quoted by Independent Media.

“We would love to place Ofori into a good team, not at the team where his career won’t go far.

“There were some talks with the team from Belgium, but nothing has been pursued as yet. If it happens, it will be the end of the season.”

Richard Ofori has started all 10 league games for Maritzburg in this season. He is also expected to be in goal in Ghana's doubleheader for AFCON 2021 qualifiers against South Africa and São Tomé and Príncipe on November 14 and 18 respectively.
