'New AmaZulu Coach Can Be Compared To Kosta Papic'

KwaZulu-Natal football is going through a turbulent time. Maritzburg United remain cemented to the bottom of the Absa Premiership log, while Lamontville Golden Arrows have seen an improvement in form. AmaZulu recently fired coach Steve Barker, and hired former Chicken Inn coach Joey Antipas of Zimbabwe. How will this improve Usuthu's prospects of becoming a South African footballing powerhouse again?

Little is known about Antipas. The name Chicken Inn, however, is familiar as they were the team that shocked Sundowns with a 1-0 victory earlier this year.

To find out more about the man, Supporters Club caught up with our Zimbabwean supporters' correspondent, Shepard Sithole. Here's what he had to say.

"He is a good coach. He has not won that much, but he's improved some football in Zimbabwe. He won two leagues in Zimbabwe with two different clubs," Sithole said. 

"I can compare him to Kosta Papic. He is an attacking coach, all his strikers like to attack. For example, Tendai Ndoro has played under him. So have those two strikers Chiefs have been looking at, (Mitchell) Katsvairo and (Edmore) Chirambadare, they are all dangerous strikers in Zimbabwe.

"I'm sure he will bring something to AmaZulu as long as he adapts, and they respect the kind of football he loves to play."

What do you think of AmaZulu's prospects for promotion? Can they become a powerful team once again?
