AmaZulu FC coach Benni McCarthy has opened up on on-loan attacker, Zukile Kewuti who has adapted well in KwaZulu-Natal.
Kewuti joined Usuthu on loan from City in February to reunite with former coach, McCarthy and has become a key player for the Durban side.
McCarthy, speaking to the media, responded to the possibility of seccuring the midfielder permanently, says it is something he would love to do.
"'Yeah Zuki is someone who I really respect, appreciate him as a player unlike where he is coming from, so of course I know his quality and what he can bring to to the team, so I would love to keep him," - McCarthy said, addressing media.
"'But that obviously, it is all up to his parent club, you know where we got him on loan from. If the sum of money becomes ridiculous because the player is enjoying himself playing for me, enjoying himself under my guidance, compared to his previous club and because of that we will be held to ransom, then circumstances will change."
McCarthy says as much he would like to have Kewuti permanently, he is not desperate and won't be allowed to be bullied to get his signature.
"But yeah he is a player I like, and I think he is a fantastic addition to the AmaZulu team and has fitted in since he came in, so yeah I would love to keep him but that depends if the price is right, I'm not gonna stare down the barrel of a gun, because we not desperate," he added.
