Mandaza to leave Maritzburg

Cape Town - Maritzburg United have decided against renewing the contract of striker Terrence Mandaza which means that he will leave at the end of the season.

The 30-year-old Zimbabwean attacker did not give the Maritzburg management enough reason to extend his stay at the club after only managing to find the net four times this season in all competitions.

He is currently in the last month of his contract, and due to his age and inconsistent form throughout the 2014/15 season it has been decided that it is best to let him go.

The side from KwaZulu-Natal finished eighth on the Absa Premiership log this season - their highest finish in their PSL history. After qualifying for the MTN8 competition they are looking to bolster their squad and get rid of the so-called ‘dead wood’ in order to make a push for the trophy.

Bloemfontein Celtic have already secured the services of Thabang Matuka and with Mandaza leaving it looks like Maritzburg United will be making large scale changes to their squad during the off-season.

The club are looking to push on after a good season and are getting their transfer business out of the way early.

30-year-old midfielder Kurt Lentjies looks set to be handed a new deal as talks with Maritzburg management are said to already be under way.
