Pietermaritzburg -  Former Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Arthur Bartman has returned home to become the new goalkeeping coach for Maritzburg United.

Baartman ended his 23-year playing career at Chiefs at the end of the season.

The 41-year-old shot-stopper also had spells at Moroka Swallows, SuperSport United, Free State Stars and Polokwane City.

The Team of Choice confirmed the news on their official website in which they also announced other additions to their technical team.

"Maritzburg United FC have confirmed that Arthur Bartman is set to take on the goalkeeper coaching role at the club recently vacated by Ronnie Kanalelo, while Mike Kemp joins as the Teams new Exercise Scientist, replacing Gerhad van der Merwe," read the statement.

"I'm delighted that Arthur has signed with us," Maritzburg United’s Commercial Manager Younus Kadodia added.

"His professionalism to the game over a number of years has allowed him to play at the highest level and we believe that he will be a good fit to Maritzburg United going forward.

"Born and bred in Pietermaritzburg , his career is an example to any aspiring youngster and I'm sure that the club will benefit from his new position" concluded Kadodia.

Bartman is set to attain his coaching badges to comply with his new role and expressed his delight at securing a job so soon after retiring from his professional career.

"It's a great privilege to be appointed as the goalkeeper coach of a PSL team coming straight out of playing and I hope I will be able to bring my experience having worked under some very good goalkeeping coaches during my playing career, including Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper coach Rainer Dinkelacker," he said.

"I see this as the first step in my future career.

"I'm really looking forward to working alongside Ernst and the rest of the Maritzburg United team."

Bartman was awarded as the best goalkeeper in the Telkom Knockout tournament in 2010.
