Downs And PSL Teams Should Be Warned As Usuthu Target Winning League

AmaZulu Target Winning The League

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 16, 2018 07:35 PM

Mamelodi Sundowns should be warned as AmaZulu are targeting winning the Absa Premiership trophy that is currently with them in Chloorkop.

Having initially finished inside the top 8 on the log after beating Cape Town City 1-0 in the last game of last season, AmaZulu thought they would play in the MTN8 in the new season, but the KwaZulu-Natal outfit later found themselves ninth on the standings, following an announcement by the PSL that Ajax Cape Town had been docked points and relegated to the NFD.

While there have been various changes on the saga regarding Ajax and their former player Tendai Ndoro and with the matter still ongoing, there has been no change regarding AmaZulu’s position outside the top eight of the log.

Controversy aside, AmaZulu have set themselves their target for the new season, which include setting their sights on winning the league.

“We have to start competing for the league title. You cannot have companies such as Spar and Umbro in your stable and play second fiddle,” AmaZulu’s general manager Lunga Sokhela told the club’s official website.  

“These are big companies and we are a big brand. We have put plenty of resources behind the club and we cannot aim for anything less. So, ultimately, the goal is to start challenging for the league title and even if we do not achieve this, that would have been our aim. From Under-13 side all the way up to the first team, we have to target league titles. We have to aim to be the best in South Africa,” said Sokhela. 

Meanwhile, newly signed AmaZulu goalkeeper Moeneeb Josephs has echoed Sokhela’s sentiments. 

“You can never win enough. Once you feel you have achieved everything than you should leave this game. AmaZulu are a team who have not been recognised for the big club they are. We have to repay the faith by winning cups and getting the team back where they belong. I am here to impart the knowledge I have on the youngsters. I hope they can learn from me and work hard. I am here to compete. Whenever the team needs me I will give my best,” Josephs told the club’s website.

Usuthu recently unveiled their seven new signings for Cavin Johnson’s team in Josephs, defenders Boiki Modisakeng, Xolani Silawuli and Marc Van Heerden, midfielders Nhlanhla Vilakazi, and Charlie Hlalele as well as Argentine striker Emiliano Tade.
