Vukusic challenges his players to help Ntuli upfront


AmaZulu coach Josef Vukusic has challenged his charges to share the load of scoring goals with in-form striker Bongi Ntuli for better results.

‘Usuthu’ are only 3 points clear from bottom of the table Polokwane City with 9 matches to play in the Absa Premiership.

It has almost seemed like a one man show at AmaZulu with Ntuli scoring 11 of 12 team’s goals this season. The other one belongs to midfielder Butholezwe Ncube.

“It’s normal that one striker scores 11 goals. If some other players could score maybe next 3, 4, 5 goals we will be in a totally different situation. So, this is not about Ntuli, maybe it’s about game plan or game concept, “said Ntuli.

“But it happens that we play our game and striker scores. I agree that this season is very specific that from 12 goals, 11 were scored by Ntuli. But I hope that in the last part of the season other players will join him and balance our performance for better results, ” said Vukusic.

The 55-year-old Slovakian mentor was brought to save AmaZulu from relegation, taking over from Cavin Johnson late last year.

The KwaZulu-Natal outfit will be up against their rivals Golden Arrows on Kings Park Stadium in the Durban derby. Kickoff at 20:15.

“We are working on that other players to score as well. It is important that we produce opportunities and all we need to do is the last step which is to score goals, “added Vukusic.
