AmaZulu: We Are Not Talking To Papic

Despite suffering three losses in their opening five games, AmaZulu are not yet considering sacking their head coach, Craig Rosslee.

The 82-year-old club, which has experienced numerous highs and lows over the years, currently lies bottom of the PSL, having netted only two goals while conceding seven.

Although Usuthu General Manager, Peter O’Connor, admits that Rosslee is under pressure, he says the club are sticking with their man and has blamed the team for their poor results.

“Obviously the coach is under pressure,” O’Connor told Soccer-Laduma. “We had a meeting the other day, he needs to deliver. But I’ve also spoken to the players about making stupid mistakes at the back and not take our opportunities up front. That’s happened in two or three games then everybody blames the coach.

“It hasn’t been an easy start for us particularly in view of the fact that most of our games have been away, which puts the team under huge pressure. Having said that, we need to turn the corner. The bottom line is that we need to get off the foot of the table and go forward from here.” 

With indications that Rosslee has three games to prove himself, AmaZulu are nevertheless not prepared to discuss a replacement, and have completely ruled out ex-Chippa mentor, Kostadin Papic.

“It’s very premature to start speculating, not in our interest to chop and change coaches all the time. We’ve found in the past that if we act too hastily, it comes back to haunt us. The club is not talking to Papic at all but I did see him at our last match against Sundowns,” he concluded.
