AmaZulu FC coach Josef Vukuzic says he is not worried about his team’s position in the Absa Premiership. Usuthu lost 1-0 to Mamelodi Sundowns in a league match on Tuesday night. Vukuzic joined the team in the middle of the season and has already registered three victories.

Usuthu are lying second from the bottom above Chippa United with 11 points from 12 matches.

Usuthu’s goalkeeper Siyabonga Mbatha was taken to hospital at half time after he collided with Sundowns defender Motjeka Madisha in the first half. Vukuzic says they have enough cover in the goalkeeping department.

AmaZulu were unlucky to lose Mbatha and veteran defender Tsepo Masilela in the match. Vukuzic says it was a big blow to lose the experienced players.


Usuthu looked better in attack in the second half after they introduced more attacking players for defenders. Vukuzic says they looked threatening after the changes.

Many teams will be looking to strengthen their teams during the January transfer window next year, but Vukuzic is not certain if they will venture into the market. – Report by Vincent Sitsula
