Ghana international Richard Ofori has revealed that he turned down Mamelodi Sundowns back in 2017 in a bid to avoid warming the bench due to the stiff competition.
Ofori passed his trial with flying colours when he was brought in from Ghana Premier League side Wa All Stars and eventually signed with Maritzburg United.
"I first came here for trials at Sundowns and after they gave me that opportunity they decided they would sign me, but because of (no guaranteed) game-time, I then came to Maritzburg.
"I have obviously grown-the Richard that came to South Africa three years ago is not the Richard that you see now,'' Ofori said in a virtual press conference."
"I have the experience and I know how things are done now, so automatically I won't be the same player.
"But the most important thing is that now I am enjoying my time here at my current club-I can't talk much about what the future holds, I am concentrating more on Maritzburg United."
