Amazulu player, Pule Ekstein has shared his thoughts on the removal of coach, Romain Folz.
The Frenchman was removed from his position as AmaZulu coach less than two months after signing a new three-year-contract with club and replaced by assistant coach Ayanda Dlamini.
Folz has been redeployed to the role of technical director, advising the club president, Sandile Zungu, on the technical aspects of AmaZulu’s Vision 2032.
“It’s not a nice thing to lose a coach, irrespective of which coach is it,” Ekstein said. “But coach Ayanda has been there with the team, he knows the guys and we know him as well. It’s not going be a difficult thing for him to take the team forward.”
Usuthu are currently lying on position 12 on the log and will play against Cape Town City on Sunday – which will be Dlamini’s first match as stand-in coach. Amazulu have only won one match from the last seven and will face a daunting task in against Cape Town City in the Mother City.
“Going to Cape Town is not going to be an easy match knowing how Cape Town City plays,” adds Ekstein.
“We saw them when they played midweek [against Mamelodi Sundowns], they played well. Since we have not been doing well in the league, we hope everything goes well. We are ready and we preparing well.
