No offers for Awal - Maritzburg



Maritzburg United have not received any offers for their Ghana centre back Mohamed Awal, who have been linked with a possible move to one of the Gauteng giants.

The club’s spokesman Younes Kadodia said any reports of a departure for the 24-year-old were mere speculation.

He said it would be make little sense to let Awal go at the midway mark of the Absa Premiership season as Premier Soccer League regulations prohibited clubs from replacing foreign players in their quota of five non-South Africans per season.

Awal, who is training with Ghana in Abu Dhabi ahead of the African Nations Cup finals and hoping to make the final list of 23 for the tournament in South Africa, has only been at Maritzburg since the start of the season.

He was signed from Asante Kotoko to replace Mor Diouf, the tall Senegalese who Maritzburg sold at considerable profit to SuperSport United in June.

Awal has been one of the factors behind Maritzburg’ surprise run of form that sees them among the PSL front runners.

Maritzburg are due to return to training on Tuesday after their Christmas break. Awal will know on Wednesday whether he has made the squad for the finals. He is still uncapped by Ghana.
