After an inconsistent start, Usuthu are in mid-table on the 16-team log, but the attacking link vows that they will defy the odds and finish in a respectable position. “I want to be one of the best players at Amazulu this season,” said Zhuwawo on the club’s website, after the Durban outfit had drawn the Kwazulu-Natal derby with Maritzburg United at the weekend. “I want to help the team finish in a respectable position, maybe the top four.”
The former Zimbabwean PSL player of the years has been one of the side’s stars so far. With 16 points, Amazulu are 12 points off-pace with log leaders Supersport United and eight adrift of fourth spot.
Their lukewarm performance has already claimed the scalp of former coach, Manqoba Mngqithi, who was replaced by Swiss-born Roger Palmgreen.
At Usuthu, the Warriors player, who joined last season, is surrounded by familiar faces – Tapuwa Kapini, who captains the side and Carlington Nyadombo.
Meanwhile, the trio is expected to play a key role tomorrow when Amazulu face struggling Santos at Cape Town’s Athlone Stadium. Santos’ form has also been wobbly, leaving them placed 14th.Post published in: Football
