"It is a very good decision for this club and for some of the young players. He (Paintsil) has a lot of experience and I am delighted he has joined me at club level," Awal told Football411's Ghana correspondent Russel Wiafe.
"I used to watch him during his playing days in England and for Ghana, so for a player like Paintsil to join Maritzburg, it is a sign if good things to come."
Pantsil's long spanning career has seen him play in Israel and England with spells with West Ham United, Fulham and Leicester City.
