Cape Town - AmaZulu recruit Energy Murambadoro thinks that Usuthu definitely have the capacity to produce a quality second half to their Premiership campaign this year.

Murambadoro, who has replaced compatriot Tapuwa Kapini this season, is one of two goalkeepers in the squad who are over the age of 30.

Experience is not something AmaZulu lacks at this juncture and Murambadoro is confident it will come to the fore during what has become an increasingly difficult period for the club.

Throughout this campaign, much of the debate has centred around AmaZulu’s prospects of surviving relegation. It will certainly be an enormous undertaking but not one that the recent recruit thinks is impossible.

"With the experience and quality of players that AmaZulu have I don’t think we are going to go to the National First Division. I have only been here for a while but I have noticed how great this club is," said Murambadoro.

"We have a great goalkeeper coach who brings in international experience that is motivating to us as a players," added Murambadoro, who has absolutely no doubts about his new team’s chances this season.

Before joining AmaZulu, Murambadoro was at Mpumalanga Black Aces, a club which are making tremendous strides this season. Naturally, there were some fears that the move to Durban would have an adverse effect on his career. However, Murambadoro does not think this will be the case.

"The decision was not instant, I needed the challenge and that is why I decided to accept the offer here," said the Zimbabwean stopper.

"Honestly it is not going to be easy. I will have to work hard to prove myself as there are two other goalkeepers in the club who are doing well," he said.
