Cape Town - John Arwuah believes that the much needed break from Absa Premiership will help AmaZulu in the long haul.

In an interview with the clubs official website, Arwuah admits that all the players’ look and feel refreshed after returning to training.

“We’re back to training and we’re looking forward to it and I believe we all feel refreshed,” said Arwuah.

“We really needed the break because we didn’t have a bright start considering our position on the log but we can change things.

“The arrival of coach Steve (Barker) lifted our morale as we started to play better as a team, so our aim is to win games.”

AmaZulu play their first Absa Premiership match next month against Orlando Pirates and Arwuah reiterates the importance to climb the log and avoid relegation at all costs.

“It’s our home game and we must do everything in our power to retain the three points no matter who we face,” added the midfielder.

“At this moment, we cannot afford to lose matches but aim for a win, well, we can settle for a draw but not a loss.

“We’re not in a decent position on the log so it’s up to us as players to fight and die for Usuthu.”
