Cape Town - AmaZulu FC
management and supporters have reached common ground pertaining to plans to
stand by Head Coach, Steve Barker during a supporters’ meeting held on 16 March
The past Sunday’s
unwanted tensions that came after the 1-0 Baroka FC home loss created the need
for the meeting which was held at Moses Mabhida Stadium offices.
The meeting was
chaired by the club’s Supporters Coordinator & Head of Security, Qedi
Dlamini alongside and Brilliant Mkhathini (Media Officer) and General Manager,
"We’re all not
happy with the results but we all know that singling out individuals in a
collective sport is unwise. Players know they all need to take responsibility
on the same account as the Head Coach,” said Sokhela.
"At this stage
we’re pleased and call upon the supporters to get behind the club as the core
leadership of the club’s branches have agreed.
"Playoffs remain still very much
a possibility for us.
"In the remaining
eight matches all Steve Barker’s energies and his technical staff need to be
focused towards preparing the team with the right kind of support for us to be
able to stand a chance of achieving our objective."
The General Manager
further declared the club’s appreciation for the unfailing support the Usuthu
faithful have displayed throughout the bumpy season.
