Further transfer movement at Maritzburg


Maritzburg United will keep their January transfer window activity busy with yet another foreign footballer headed for the exit after a disappointing season in which he has only played once.

With Venezuelan forward Jose Ali Meza also already after making no contribution this term due to injury Algerian left-footer Fares Hachi is also set to depart.  

Hachi has played just 11 minutes this season, which was in the season opener against Golden Arrows, sat on the bench in the next against Sekhukhune United and has then not been in the squad since then.

Last season – his first with the club after arriving from the French lower divisions – he featured in 19 games for the club but only managed to play from start to finish in just five.

Originally brought into the country by Mamelodi Sundowns five years ago from Algerian club ES Setif he has also played for Chippa United on loan.  

"We will basically have to look at his future and see if he is part of the player that can still be kept at the club or not," Farook Kadodia, the Maritzburg United chairman tells KickOff.com.

"We have to find a way forward for Fares Hachi to see if he still fits in our plans or not. He has battled to get into the team. For now, he remains with the club, but we will be releasing some players next week," Kadodia told this website on Monday,” says Kadodia.

Maritzburg have already cashed in on Bafana Bafana forward Bongokuhle Hlongwane trading him to Major League Soccer club Minnesotta United.
