Phakaaathi has learnt that Maritzburg United are looking at replacing coach Ernst Middendorp with Roger De Sa if the club’s fortunes do not change soon.

According to a source close to the Team of Choice, Maritzburg have given Middendorp a couple of games to start winning or face a possible axing from the club.

“If Maritzburg fail to win the next two games in Cape Town against Ajax and Cape Town City, it will mean the end of Middendorp’s tenure as Maritzburg coach. Roger De Sa could be the next coach Maritzburg coach by the time they host Chippa at the end of the month,” said the source.

De Sa is currently without a team after he parting ways with Ajax Cape Town following a poor start to the season.

The 52-year-old coach has been linked with a move back to Orlando Pirates after Muhsin Ertugral resigned following a 6-1 drubbing by SuperSport United.
