the striker was breaking through into the professional ranks, while
Davids was then an established performer.
The 36-year-old has since embarked on a career in coaching and he
will lead Maritzburg when they face Matsatsantsa in Saturday's MTN8
semi-final at the Lucas Moripe Stadium.
Grobler told the Sowetan: "His work ethic was impressive
back then and as a coach I believe he works even harder. You also get

Grobler, who has been in a rich vein of form will face his former mentor when the two sides clash in an MTN8 semi-final on Saturday with Matsatsantsa seen as the slight favourites.
Kick off is at 20:15.
