Maboe has been linked with Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns, but the attacking midfielder says he will stay with Maritzburg next season.

“Yeah… I won’t stay at Maritzburg forever but from here I want to go overseas. The only offer that I and the team will consider is overseas,” Maboe told Times Live.

“I still have a contract with Maritzburg that I have to honour‚ so I will still be with the team next season,” he continued.

Maboe says he his father, Sidwell Maboe, a former Orlando Pirates striker, is proud of him.

“He just motivates a lot. He just says ‘mfanami (my boy) just stay humble and keep working hard izinto zizozenzakalela (things will just happen automatically)’,” the tricky player added.

“He also reminds me that I need to keep on praying. He says ‘Pray and everything will then take care of itself’,” Maboe, who still has one-year left on his contract with Maritzburg, concluded.
