Maritzburg coach shockingly condemns award for his own Ghanaian goalkeeper Richard Ofori

Martizburg United coach Eric Tinkler has slammed the Man of the Match award to his own goalkeeper Richard Ofori insisting the Ghana international does not deserve the award after their league match in the South African top-flight.
Tinkler is furious over the the post match gong given to his shotstopper after their draw against Stellenbosch in the Premier Soccer League over the weekend.
The former South Africa midfielder believes Stellenbosch goalkeeper De Jong deserves the award, claiming he was the better of the two on the day.
Tinkler described the award as ridiculous and feels his goalie did not deserve it.
"I find that decision absolutely ridiculous," was his angry reaction to the Maritzburg United and Ghana 2019 Africa Cup of Nations shot-stopper being presented with a statuette and a cash prize.
"I really do not know how he was named man of the match when the other goalkeeper (Boy de Jong) was much busier," he added after a 0-0 draw with promoted Stellenbosch in Cape Town.
Ofori kept a clean sheet, his first of the Premier Soccer League season and made series of fine saves.
