Maritzburg United have ended their time with the rather forgotten Algerian defender Fares Hachi, according to a report from iDiski Times on Monday.


While the club is yet to make an official announcement that confirms the news, iDiski Times has assured the decision has been made.

“Maritzburg United and Fares Hachi have parted ways via mutual consent after the Algerian fell out of favour with the club,” the outlet reported on Monday.

“Hachi, 32, joined United from French outfit SC Lyon in October 2020 under then-head coach Eric Tinkler for his third stint in South African football after Mamelodi Sundowns and Chippa United,” the report added.
