The 31-year-old centre-back is expected to face his former club Mamelodi Sundowns in his first match for Usuthu.

The Brazilians and Usuthu are scheduled to play in Telkom Knockout Last 16 match at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Sunday.

The towering defender says AmaZulu's Slovakian coach wants him to play a leadership role on the field in the team. 

“What the coach wants is obviously for me to be a leader, to contribute to the team and help the players around me. I have played some friendly matches and have got to understand what the coach wants from us, individually and as a group,” said Booysen, as quoted on AmaZulu’s official website.

“Where it comes to the AmaZulu family it has always been a pleasure playing against them. It’s going to be nice playing for them now. I can see that they support, they stick to it, they stick with the players. It’s always good because you can see that they’re passionate, they’re always there through the ups and downs, and that is something that you can take. Obviously, that is why you want to play as a footballer, always for the team and for the supporters to keep them happy and keep them coming to the field. From my observation I can see they’re passionate about the team, they love the club,” said Booysen.
