Maritzburg United, Clive Barker part ways

Maritzburg United and their coach Clive Barker have parted ways after the poor performance of the club.

Barker is the second coach to be fired by Team of Choice this season as we know that Mandla Ncikazi was axed at the beginning of the season. He has been in charge of six matches only.

It looked that Maritzburg under BarBarker_3ker may have turned the tables, their last two results a 1-0 win at Tuks and then a 1-1 draw at home against champions Kaizer Chiefs.

But the Team of Choice are still bottom of the table, with just five points from 11 fixtures.

Chairman Farouk Kadodia, said the pressure just took its toll.
“It leaves us with a lot of soul-searching to do,” . We all sat together … something is wrong. The truth is that we have played 11 games and we have five points. We need to do whatever it takes,”Kadodia told Sport24 on Tuesday.

Kadodia said that Barker, 71, himself had felt the pressure of the job “was heavy”.
But the process is not an easy one, says Kadodia.

“All of the good guys are already in good jobs. At the end of the day we need football that is going to get results,” he said.
Maritzburg United’s next fixture will be on the 20th of December against Platinum Stars.
