MARITZBURG PLACE THEIR TRUST IN TINKLER
     
   
 

Maritzburg United have confirmed the appointment of Eric Tinkler as head coach until the end of the season.

 

     
 

 

The 48-year-old will take charge of his first training session at the Harry Gwala Stadium on Tuesday ahead of his first assignment against former club Bidvest Wits on Friday.

 

Tinkler has vast experience of coaching having previously been at the helm of the Students, Orlando Pirates, Cape Town City, SuperSport United and Chippa United.

 

The club are optimistic that his arrival will bring about a change of fortunes for the KwaZulu-Natal capital club.

 

Team of Choice chairman Farook Kadodia revealed that Tinkler has penned a six-month deal until end of June, with the option to sign for a further two years after that.

 

With United currently propping up the Absa Premiership table, it was important to get the right kind of character in to restore morale, and with Tinkler, the club believe they have got the right man.

 

“I spoke to Eric at length yesterday and this morning, it’s obviously a different approach when you’re fighting relegation, and he understands very well the approach that is needed and he has a strategy of how to get the club out of relegation trouble,” the Chairman stated.

 

“I firmly believe that after my long day yesterday speaking to the team and the technical staff, that their full support will be behind Eric. This is what you want, because you can bring a new coach in but if the team is not behind him, then obviously you have challenges.

 

“But from what Eric has told me, he knows what it will take to bring the club out of the current situation.”
