AmaZulu director and chairman Sandile Zungu has reiterated his support for the team’s technical team and players.
Usuthu have enjoyed some great form this season and in the process registering themselves in the record books for the season.
Zungu told the media that the commitment and dedication shown by players and technical team has not gone unnoticed as they will award players who have been outstanding for the team this season, in their season achievers awards.
“On the 31 May 2021, two days after the end of the season in the Howick area, we’ll be hosting AmaZulu FC players awards,” Zungu confirmed.
“It will be time and opportunity for our players to enjoy the limelight, they have worked so hard and they will be superstars of the day.”
“Our players have been phenomenal, they have worked hard for the team and the coach has been working very well with them,” said Zungu.
The chairman also touched on the speculation that was linking McCarthy and his technical team to Bafana Bafana, before Hugo Broos was appointed this week.
He assured the supporters of the team that they have a solid plan with the technical team for next season.
“The recent stories that were linking our technical team to Bafana Bafana were met with great resistance. I have been very consistent in saying we will not release Benni McCarthy.
“He is doing a fantastic job, why must we sacrifice the greatness of AmaZulu, which is in the rebuild for the glory of a great course that we all subscribe to, but which has got many alternatives,” asked Zungu.
“Our fans have been talking to us, writing to us and calling, to say you dare release him. So when they say that to us, we take them serious because we know they have the best interests of the team at heart.”
“So we were very clear, we did not want to release Benni and I think it just helps that he is contracted to AmaZulu Football Club and in terms of the rule of law, we honour contracts, so he is not going anywhere,” concluded Zungu.
