AmaZulu have issued an update about the future of experienced defender Tsepo Masilela whose contract has come to an end.
Masilela joined AmaZulu in November last year on a short-term deal which was set to run up to June.
Following the disruptions caused by the Coronavirus, which led to the season extending to September instead of May, the former Kaizer Chiefs star was handed a short-term extension on his deal at the Durban-based club to the end of the 2019/20 campaign.
AmaZulu feel that the 35-year-old left-back has done enough with the experience he has added to the squad to earn a contract extension to keep him for longer.
“We’re going to be engaging Mr Tsepo Masilela. We feel he’s one of the players that have really played a critical leadership role within the squad. He’s come here and brought all that experience into the squad which has assisted us greatly. We will be engaging in the next couple of days about continuing with us further. So, we really have been happy with his contribution,” AmaZulu general manager Lunga Sokhela said, speaking to the media.
