Cape Town - After parting ways with Maritzburg United, Clive Barker insists that the club is on the verge of turning things around.

Sport24 reported that Barker had only been in charge of the Team of Choice for six matches before Maritzburg opted to end their relationship with the 1996 Africa Cup of Nations winning coach.

United have been struggling after being anchored to the bottom of the Absa Premiership log for most parts of the 2015/16 campaign so far.

However, Barker believes that things are set to change for the better as he departs the club.

"I think the club is on track to turn things around," Barker said as quoted by KickOff.

"A special thanks to Fadlu Davids, he is one of the finest assistant coaches I have worked with.

"Thanks to everybody for a pleasant stay. I wish the club well for the rest of the season."
