Amazulu happy with first win
Amazulu captain, Carlington Nyadombo, has said that his team did a great job after winning their Telkom Knockout game against Bloemfontein Celtic over the weekend.
During the first minutes of the game Amazulu were down 0-2, but ended up winning the game 3-2, without the guidance of their coach, Craig Rosslee, who had been asked to step aside for the match. Assistant coach, Wilfred Mugeyi, was put in charge of the team for the clash.
This is Amazulu’s first win of the campaign, with Nyadomdo saying that his team felt like they had won the whole competition.
"It was one of our best games this season and maybe doing it without the coach there showed that we have always had it within us."
He added that he was unsure who would be coaching the team when they face Chippa United on the 18th of October, when the league continues after the international break.
"I don't know anything at the moment, but we are still hoping we can have him around to be our head coach," the Usuthu skipper explained.
"However, it is not my position to decide what happens with the coach because as a player I have to support whatever stance the management takes."
