Crucial Decision Pending On Usuthu Midfielder

An AmaZulu midfielder will be waiting eagerly to hear about his future after the club lifted his suspension.

In a shock move last month by relegation-threatened Usuthu, the club suspended the experienced quintet of Jabulani Ncobeni, Thembela Sikhakhane, Nhlanhla Vilakazi, Michael Morton and Lehlohonolo Majoro, following the team’s disappointing 4-1 defeat against Bloemfontein Celtic in the Nedbank Cup.

However, after the Durban-based club placed head coach Jozef Vukusic on special leave earlier this month and put Ayanda Dlamini in charge as caretaker coach along with goalkeeper Moeneeb Josephs, most of the players were brought back into the team. Subsequently Ncobeni returned to the match-day squad for Usuthu in their last match before the PSL break – in the impressive 1-0 win over log leaders Kaizer Chiefs – after he, Morton, Sikhakhane and Vilakazi had their suspension lifted, with only Majoro left behind. 

Ncobeni, 27, was a second half substitute as the KwaZulu-Natal outfit shocked Chiefs at FNB Stadium to move up one place on the log from the bottom of the standings to 15th.

Having joined AmaZulu in 2017 from Richards Bay FC in the NFD (now GladAfrica Championship), Ncobeni will see his contract with the club expire at the end of June, and Ncobeni’s representative, Ayanda Sigwili, confirmed to the Siya crew that they have not agrreed to a new deal as yet.

You can expect AmaZulu to assess their player contrcats at the end of the season, once they are aware of their PSL status, though do risk losing players on a free. Ncobeni, having entered into the last six months of his contract, is free to sign a pre-contract and will be in a position to move on a free at the end of the campaign if his situation remains unchanged.
