Maritzburg United head coach, Fadlu Davids says he is extremely proud that all three KwaZulu-Natal teams have qualified for top eight finishes in the Absa Premiership 2017/18 season.

AmaZulu FC, Golden Arrows and United qualified for top eight on the last day of the tightly contested 2017/18 PSL season.

All three finished on 4th, 7th and 8th position respectively. This is the first time in the Premier Soccer League era that all KZN teams will play in the top eight competitions. AmaZulu last reached a top eight finish in 2008/09 season, while coached by Neil Tovey.

But for Arrows and United, they have been consistently in the top eight positions in the last two seasons.

On other hand, Arrows coach Clinton Larsen has attributed a top eight finish this season to his boys, for hard work and undying spirit.

Davids says it is really fantastic for KwaZulu-Natal to have three teams in the top eight.

“Extremely proud of the KZN teams, it’s really fantastic that all three KZN teams are in the top eight. Well done to Calvin Johnson and Clinton Larsen for finishing in the top eight. KZN football is on the rise. KZN people can be really proud of the new force that can once again be part of the top team. All three in the top eight that is absolutely fantastic and well done to all teams,” says Davids.
