This season’s Absa Premiership sees no less than five Ghanaian-born players currently pursuing their football careers in Africa’s southernmost nation.

In case you maybe be unsure, the names from Ghana playing in SA this season are Richard Ofori, Mohammed Anas, Edwin Gyimah, Richard Boateng and Samuel Darpoh… so how are they doing?

If there’s one Ghanaian who is flying the nation’s flag the highest in Mzansi, it is without question Maritzburg United’s goalkeeper Richard Ofori.
