AmaZulu coach Jozef Vukusic is reluctant to say much about his special leave, after the club decided to replace him with Ayanda Dlamini and Moeneeb Josephs in preparing for the upcoming match against log leaders Kaizer Chiefs.
Dlamini coached the Durban-based club’s MultiChoice Diski Challenge team before being roped in as Vukusic’s assistant in the first team three weeks ago, while Josephs has never coached any professional club before.
“I don’t comment on that...what you are saying. I can’t comment on that. I can’t comment on anything because I need to see people and speak to people. After that I can say something. I haven’t read anything, so I don’t know what you are saying now,” Vukusic told the Siya crew.
Last month, AmaZulu put five senior players Thembela Sikhakhane, Lehlohonolo Majoro, Michael Morton, Jabulani Ncobeni and Nhlanhla Vilakazi on a ‘special training program’. The players have been absent from the matchday squads amid the current relegation battle, while former assistant coach Mabhuti Khenyeza jumped ship to take charge of TS Galaxy in the second tier league.
AmaZulu returned to South Africa’s top tier league in 2017, after purchasing the status of Thanda Royal Zulu, who were recently promoted at the time.
Usuthu had been relegated to the second tier at the end of the 2014/15 season, and struggled to fight their way back to the elite league.
