Maristzburg United’s team manager Quintin Jettoo confirmed Awal’s move on the club’s official website:

‘We would like to thank the player for his outstanding contribution at Maritzburg United and wish him all the best for his future.’ .

‘We signed Mohammed as a relatively unknown player and we are proud to have been able to help in his development as he went on to become a regular in the Ghana national team, which naturally has brought a lot of interest in him.

‘We will certainly miss Mohammed in the team, but we are fortunate to have a fair amount of depth in the centre-back position and we are confident that the players we have will use the opportunity to step up and stake a regular place in the starting eleven.’
