De Reuck, who joined Maritzburg United in 2017 from Milano United has been of the consistent players for side and he is considered one of the most talented defenders in the country.
The 24-year-old has previously played for Portuguese club Pacos de Ferreira between 2014 and 2015.
"I don’t know, maybe he played with fear when he first came to the club. But I knew he would be the best in South Africa and even for Bafana Bafana," said Ofori to The Citizen.
"He had played in Portugal and learned a lot and most of the players he was with there have also graduated to the big leagues. I always told him that he would be a great defender."
De Reuck's consistent displays at the heart of Maritzburg's defence have reportedly attracted interest from several clubs including Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates.
