Durban - AmaZulu have appointed Steve Barker as their new head coach with immediate effect to help the club stabilise their 2014/15 Absa Premiership season.

The club could only confirm his appointment after Barker had met with his past employers on Sunday evening to formalise his departure.

The 46 year old coach joins Usuthu having guided University of Pretoria for over six years, in which he helped them gain promotion to the PSL from the national first division in 2011/12 season.  

“Steve Barker has been appointed to the head coach role as someone we believe will add much needed experience and an ability to guide the team to stability from the current situation AmaZulu are in.

“We will also discuss with the current technical team including Wilfred Mugeyi on the way forward regarding how things will take shape in the set up,” said AmaZulu General Manager Peter O’Connor.  

Assistant coach Wilfred Mugeyi was put in charge as caretaker coach after Craig Rosslee was relieved of his duties as head coach on 15 October 2014.

AmaZulu are currently placed 16th on the log having collected just 4 points in 11 matches.
