AmaZulu Recall Suspended Personnel For Chiefs

AmaZulu have recalled their suspended senior players as the relegation fight intensifies, with only seven matches remaining for the team for the season.  

Following their 1-0 loss against Chippa United last weekend, AmaZulu face an uphill battle against log leaders Kaizer Chiefs in their next match on Saturday.

Three weeks ago, reports emerged in local media that the Durban-based club put Thembela Sikhakhane, Lehlohonolo Majoro, Michael Morton, Jabulani Ncobeni and Nhlanhla Vilakazi on suspension.

AmaZulu general manager Lunga Sokhela later explained that the five senior players were put on a special training program, while the technical team worked with the rest of the squad to try and improve the team’s results.

Now, 26 days after the 4-1 loss for Usuthu in the Nedbank Cup against Bloemfontein Celtic, which was the last match the five players played, the KwaZulu-Natal club has called on four of them to return to training.

Of the five, only Majoro is still on a ‘special training program’ while the rest are expected to assist their teammates in the fight for points at FNB Stadium against the high-flying Amakhosi.

AmaZulu lost both the league matches against Golden Arrows and Chippa United during the five players’ absence.

The club then decided to suspend their coach Jozef Vukusic, and replaced him with former MultiChoice Diski Challenge coach Ayanda Dlamini and goalkeeper Moeneeb Josephs.

AmaZulu are staring relegation in the face, having won only five from 23 matches so far in the campaign, and are positioned at the basement of the log.
