'Usuthu Will Be Force To Be Reckoned With'

AmaZulu FC kick off their 2021/22 DStv Premiership season against defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns and Joseph Makhanya has given his thoughts on how the club will manage last year's success.

Usuthu finished second behind Masandawana last season and after their MTN8 quarterfinal loss to Cape Town City last weekend, many have questioned whether the Durban-based side is able to mirror the success of the last campaign. 

Former PSL midfielder 'Dukuduku' is confident that fearless Benni McCarthy will lead Usuthu to another great season. 

"Benni McCarthy doesn't compromise on his team, he doesn't allow them to be on comfort zone. He pushes them to achieve great things," McCarthy told the Siya crew. 

"For them to finish in the top two last season was huge and this season they can still achieve that. It is possible, but I see them at least finishing in the top five, being champions is impossible for them right now... they not there yet. 

"With ambitious coach and chairman Sandile Zungu, definitely they will be force to be reckoned with for this season, so I feel they are capable of doing well again but not winning the league. I don't think it is possible for now. 

"Benni is brave and that is good for them. It is what we need in the PSL, they are not scared to attack any team so I see them doing well, but as I said, not beyond second position."
