Palmer uncertain over future


This was disclosed by Palmer, who steered United to top of the First Division Coastal Stream this campaign.

Since helping the Pietermaritzburg-side get closer to returning to the Absa Premiership, Palmer has reportedly been courted by KZN and Gauteng clubs regarding his services for next season.

“Yes, it’s true there have been interest from the clubs in KZN and Gauteng. I will know after the meeting on Wednesday where I stand regarding my future. So far I’m happy with everything here at Maritzburg United,” Palmer told

The meeting will take place before United know who they will face in the First Division play offs as FC AK face being replaced by either Dynamos or Mpumalanga Black Aces.

This is after FC AK was found guilty of allegedly trying to bribe Black Aces keeper Michel Babale. The Eldorado-based outfit finished top of the Inland Stream log.

Palmer said they were not perturbed about who they will face in the promotional play offs.

“Our focus is on the final irrespective of who we play. Luckily for me with about four games to round up the season, I managed to see Dynamos and Aces. I more or less have an idea what to expect from them if we get to play them,” said Palmer.
