Durban - AmaZulu striker, Sifiso Vilakazi, has hinted that he may leave the club after only playing a handful of matches this season.
Kickoff's website reports that Vilikazi has admitted his frustration at the lack of gametime he has received from a club he only joined at the beginning of this season.
"I have to admit that things didn't go according to plan this past
season so much that I just want to forget about the past season," Vilakazi said.
He finished the season without a goal to his credit, playing in only seven league matches for the Usuthu. Vilakazi's last appearance for AmaZulu was as a substitute in AmaZulu's 2-0 loss to Kaizer Chiefs in the PSL in December.
"My misfortunes started at the beginning of the season when I arrived
at the club and was told that I am overweight. The club then ordered
that I must shed weight but then I couldn't go down to what they wanted
me to get to despite trimming down.
"So it all became an issue but the reality is that I have always been
like this since I started playing football but I am grateful that there
were people who always stood by me all the time at the club."
Vilakazi joined Usuthu from Bidvest Wits on a free transfer, but lamented on his time in KwaZulu-Natal.
“The season is now over and it was a really disappointing one for me
and I don't know where I stand going forward though I have a contract.
The worst thing is that I was always scoring goals in the Reserve League
and being used as an example in as far as finishing is concerned at
training but then never go to play.
At 33, Vilakazi's time may be running out for him to secure a place at
another top-flight club willing to offer him a regular place in their
"This is the first time that I have finished the season carrying so
much disappointment after having to score even once. I just hope we find
a workable way going forward because I am going to be 34 this year and I
really need to be playing," says Vilakazi.
