Why Farook Kadodia says he won't sell Maritzburg United's PSL status


It has become a norm for club owners in the PSL to sell their status for various reasons including financial difficulty or profit.

Bidvest have just sold Wits to Tshakhuma Tsha Madzhivhandila owner Lawrence Mulaudzi, ending the 99-year history of the university-formed club, provided the PSL approves the deal.

But the Team of Choice chief says he would never think about selling Maritzburg United's status.

"I have an obligation to KwaZulu-Natal people," Kadodia tells KickOff.com.

"We can never think of selling our status because so many people have contributed to this club."

Before the beginning of this season, Kadodia had a roundtable conversation with KZN media where he explained that he sells his top players as part of his way of keeping the team running.

Asked to share advice on how to survive in the PSL, he emphasised the importance of understanding your bugdet as a club owner.

"Well, you must run the club with financial discipline, don't feel pressured by other teams and end up spending what is over your budget," he says.

"Understand your budget and focus on developing quality players. It helps to keep the team in this competitive space."
