As the 2021/22 DStv Premiership season nears its conclusion Middendorp’s Team of Choice side are currently in 14th place in the standings with 24 points with just four matches remaining this campaign.
They are a point above Swallows in 15th place who currently lie in the second-from-bottom promotion-relegation spot.
The 63-year-old German mentor spoke of ’30’ being the magical points tally to avoid relegation this season, how he is fully committed to Maritzburg United long-term and how the club almost signed Orlando Pirates star Kwame Peprah.
In addition, Ernst Middendorp had words of encouragement for fellow KwaZulu-Natal side Royal AM in their CAF Champions League quest.
