Cape Town - AmaZulu coach, Steve Barker, has provided some much-needed good news to Usuthu fans after informing them that they shouldn’t worry about players leaving.

Barker has got straight back to work despite just recently being relegated with the club.

He is intent on dragging the club straight back to the PSL.

“We have started our preparations although it not physical training, but we have been trying to ensure that all the paper work is in place and we get all the right players we need to get us back to the PSL with a straight promotion,” Barker told the AmaZulu official website.

He has, for now, dispelled the fears that there would be an exodus of players as some stars might not want to drop down a league.

“Look, the players have contracts with the club and so they will not just leave.

"We are still looking at negotiating with some of them but things are looking good,” he said.

Like Swallows, the AmaZulu squad is filled with older players and with the NFD rule requiring each starting eleven to contain five Under-23 players there will have to be some sort of restructuring at the club.

“We did not have many Under-23 players and so this will give the Durban Warriors players a chance to prove themselves.

"We are looking at signing one or two players from there and also look at other experienced players we can get.”

Durban Warriors is in SAFA’s Second Division League and forms part of the AmaZulu youth structures.
