AmaZulu are linked with a Danish coach despite the club stating that they have no plans to part ways with Cavin Jonnson.
Before the end of the 2018/19 season, AmaZulu’s general manager Lunga Sokhela stated in the media that there had been no plans to relieve Johnson of his coaching duties at the club.
While the Usuthu official confirmed that the club’s management have not been entirely satisfied with the team’s progress – mainly due to their inconsistent results – he indicated that there have been no plans to make coaching changes at the KwaZulu-Natal club.
AmaZulu finished the 2018/19 Absa Premiership campaign in position 11 with 31 points from their 30 matches. The team had six points deducted from their tally during the season, after the club failed to comply with a ruling from FIFA regarding a disciplinary matter in 2014, which involved Namibian player Phinheas Nambandi and unlawful termination of his contract.
The Siya crew has been informed that Danish coach Jesper Fredberg has been offered to the Durban-based club.
Fredberg previously coached in Denmark and in Cyprus and is currently unattached. “There have been talks regarding a possible move for coach Jesper Fredberg to AmaZulu,” a source told the Siya crew.
Fredberg’s representative, Sofian Soltani, confirmed interest in the coach from the KZN outfit, although he did not to divulge any details.
However, Sokhela has said that Usuthu have no plans of replacing Johnson from his head coaching position, although the club official hinted at possible adjustments to the veteran mentor’s technical team for the new season.
