Despite their inexperience in coaching at the highest level, Ayanda Dlamini and Moeneeb Josephs have a daunting task of saving AmaZulu's topflight status.
Following AmaZulu’s decision of putting the club’s head coach Jozef Vukusic on special leave since March, Dlamini and Josephs are expected to remain at the helm as caretaker coaches until the end of the season, as it seems that the Slovakian coach could soon be on his way out of the KwaZulu-Natal club.
Dlamini and Josephs led Usuthu to an impressive 1-0 win over log leaders Kaizer Chiefs in their first match in charge in March, prior to the PSL break due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
With the 2019/20 season expected to resume, the expectation will be for Dlamini and Josephs to continue where they left off with their impressive work by leading the team to safety on the Absa Premiership log.
The Durban-based club is in 15th place on the log and their next match will be against 13th-placed Baroka FC in a relegation battle.
In the remaining fixtures this season, Usuthu will play against Baroka, Bidvest Wits, Bloemfontein Celtic, Black Leopards, Stellenbosch and Highlands Park.
AmaZulu found their way back to the topflight after buying the status Thanda Royal Zulu in 2017.
Thanda had been promoted, following an impressive 2016/17 campaign in the National First Division.
