The Premier Soccer League has released the list of players registered by AmaZulu for the 2013/14 season, to date.
Following the opening rounds of the 2013/14 PSL campaign, Usuthu seem like a team with a purpose to achieve success this season. From their opening game of the season, against Orlando Pirates, they made it clear that they mean business.
The hard work that Craig Rosslee and his technical team have invested into the side is finally paying off with some impressive results.
AmaZulu recorded a remarkable 2-1 win over Ajax Cape Town away from home last weekend, and have secured six points from a possible nine after three rounds of league action.
The team’s next three league games will be against Moroka Swallows (H), Wits (A) and SuperSport United (H).
Soccer-Laduma takes a look at Usuthu’s 2013/14 season squad:
