‘Slim Kat’ relishes relegation fight


AmaZulu assistant coach Moeneeb Josephs is confident that he alongside interim coach Ayanda Dlamini can save ‘Usuthu’ from dropping down to the GladAfrica Championship.

The KZN outfit is in the relegation zone as they lie second from the bottom of the table with 23 points in 24 matches played before the season was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Josephs, who signed a contract extension earlier this week until the end of the season, understands that the ‘Usuthu’ inexperienced technical team have to pull a rabbit out of the hat to help the club keep their topflight status.

“We are one group now, everyone buys into the plan that coach (Ayanda) Dlamini has laid before us. We are motivated to achieve more. The players want to be here and fight to stay up,” said Josephs.

“I’ve worked with this squad for two seasons now and I understand how they think. As an experienced player, I can assist them in the aspects that we lacked before, the motivational side of it, to help them believe that they are capable of achieving more.

“I’ll be honest, I have plans to return to Johannesburg and start up my own business at a later stage but for right now, this is an opportunity I cannot pass up on. I am a person who loves challenges and it gets no better than trying to help save the team that is filled with so much potential,” concluded Josephs.
