Former Pirates Player Land On Maritzburg United's Radar?

Former Pirates Player Become of Interest to Maritzburg United? 

It was recently reported that the South African team Maritzburg United fired eight players, including veteran defender Clayton Daniels, who was one of the club's major performers. 

However, the club has replaced Ernst Middendorp with former Bloemfontein Celtic and Royal AM head coach Johan van Graan. 

Since then, Bonginkosi Makume's name has been bandied about as a possible new addition to the team, but no announcement on his joining has been made as of yet for the next 2022–23 season. 

According to Soccer Laduma's reporting, former Royal AM and Bloemfontein Celtic coach John Maduka is now interested in working with a former player. 

Maduka believes that former Orlando Pirates goalie Jackson Mabokgwane can be the team's starting goalkeeper in the upcoming season. 

After his contract with Baroka FC expired in June, the club dismissed Jackson Mabokgwane, who is now a free agent. 

Jackson has played for several different Premier Soccer League teams, including Bloemfontein Celtic, Royal AM, Orlando Pirates, and Baroka FC. This month, Maritzburg United is expected to announce new signings, and Jackson may be one of them for the Team of Choice.
