Black Stars first-choice goalkeeper, Richard Ofori has been named as the match-day captain of his club, Maritzburg United.
His appointment as the match-day captain means Richard will lead the team on the field of play.
The team also appointed Ofori’s teammate, Nazeer Allie as the club captain. According to the coach of the club, Eric Tinkler, Nazeer will play the role of representing the players to the management and him.
“Selecting a captain was always going to be difficult. Richard, a national team goalkeeper for Ghana, is definitely our first-choice goalkeeper, so it made sense to appoint Richard as our match-day captain,” the coach said.
Richard Ofori was the Black Stars’ number one goalkeeper at the just ended 2019 AFCON. He did amazing even though the team couldn’t progress beyond the Round of 16 in the competition.
Ofori played for Wa Allstars in Ghana before moving to South Africa.
Congratulations to Richard Ofori!
