Awal: It’s Maritzburg’s call to make

Posted: 21 January 2013 Time: 10:46 am

Maritzburg United defender Mohammed Awal says he is keen to focus on the Africa Cup of Nations with Ghana, even though he is aware of the controversy surrounding his future with Orlando Pirates in the market for him.

Awal has been at the centre of claims and counter claims between Pirates and Maritzburg United about his future and while the Ghana international is keen for it to be sorted out quickly, he is also adamant he doesn't want it to affect him.

"I am aware there has been interest, but also aware of the issues surrounding it,” he tells KickOff.com. "I want to leave everything with the club to sort out while I focus on getting into the Ghana side at least for now."

Awal, who has previously played for Kumasi Asante Kotoko in Ghana and ASEC Mimosa in Ivory Coast, won't be drawn on whether he is interested in a switch except to say a decision will have to be made by Maritzburg.

"At the end of the day I have a three-year contract with the club at the moment so it is all up to them.”

Could care less about you KickOff gossip mongers have to say regarding transfer rmouors. You spoke as if the Rainford Kalaba deal was as good as done with just a few loose ends to tie up but his name appears in the TP Mazembe Champions League squad. What does that mean? Gutter journalism at its best

We don't want you Mr Awal, it is you who want us. At Pirates we don't want players but players want us for Championship taste. So is is your call not MaUnited call.

Bucs faithfuls, there is no need to insult Kick Off interns journalist, we can just deviate and engage in our club issues or maybe help Garden Iguson turn the corner since there is no one else who is capable of assisting Gordon.

Lets talk about his chance of beating Angola, mara that Angolian defence is very organised and the defensive middlefield is impressive.

Why dont we approach the game with 3 defensive middlefield, with Yeye n ACE having the option of joining in attack, whiles Fullman stay and do dirty job, will play May Mahlangu on the right and Chabangu on the left. With Mphela upfront.

We have Bester and Ndulula whom Maritzburg would die to swap with.

**********
To be fair it is already late, this stubborn moegoe has to reap the benefits of his zebrish mentality. Like i said before, you going to blame one player after the other, you going to recommend every player until we left only with T'zozo. The players are being the victims here, the problem is the coach and his secret tactics.

Against Stuart Baxter the CV Coach, Gordon showed us that all this time when he said he has hidden hand he meant the doof doof run play typified by the Kaizer Chiefs brand. The moment i saw his line-up i knew he is finished and fingered.

Guys lets starts making propositions for a new coach and what "WE" expect from him. If you can have a Country like Nigeria with a wide pool of talent plying their trades in the best European leagues but still having a 5 year plan, who are us to think we can do well with the likes of Thuso Phala and Majoro. Nigeria's vision is 2018.

Ye baba, ungazozenza isiphukuphuku la, eish uyibhari joe, so best players at Chiefs are measure by getting a man of the match against Pirates. This is a joke of the year and this guy is a fool of the year. Mathoho was rejected by FC Twente, he is average but has potential, depending on which team he plays for, At Pirates he would have grown better.
