Maritzburg United have confirmed the new-look technical team who will support head coach Fadlu Davids in his quest to elevate the club away from the foot of the DStv Premiership standings.
The Team of Choice confirmed on Thursday that newly-appointed head coach Fadlu Davids would be reunited with former Orlando Pirates colleagues Wayne Sandilands and Darian Wilkin, with the former appointed as the club's new goalkeeper coach and the latter to serve as assistant first team coach.
Davids will also be supported in the backroom by physical trainer Burger van der Merwe who has returned for a second spell at Maritzburg United while Mueez Kajee has assumed the role of performance / video analyst.
"Meet our technical team behind Coach Fadlu Davids. Wayne Sandilands (Goalkeeper Coach), Darian Wilken (Assistant Coach), Burger Van Der Merwe (Physical Trainer) and Mueez Kajee (Performance/Video Analyst)," the club said in a statement.

Maritzburg United currently find themselves at the bottom of the DStv Premiership standings after claiming just two wins from their opening thirteen matches – a run which saw former head coach John Maduka relieved of his duties last month.
The Pietermaritzburg-based side will return to action on 30 December when they place host to fellow relegation-threatened outfit TS Galaxy at the Harry Gwala Stadium before travelling to Marumo Gallants a week later.
