Cape Town - AmaZulu goalkeeper Energy Murambadoro is wholly satisfied with the progress made during his brief tenure at the Durban-based club.

Since joining AmaZulu, Murambadoro has already made four starting appearances in all competitions. It goes without saying that the journey has not been a smooth one for the Zimbabwean, who has conceded goals in every match he has played for the club thus far.

He conceded two against Orlando Pirates in his first match for the club and that was followed by seven more goals against Bloemfontein Celtic, Golden Arrows and SuperSport United in ensuing weeks.

However, the veteran 'keeper has opted to remain positive under the circumstances and still feels that something can be salvaged from this season, despite the odds being stacked heavily against Usuthu.

"It has been great and I must say that AmaZulu is the most professional club that I have ever played for," said Murambadoro, who has also competed for Mpumalanga Black Aces and Bidvest Wits during his career in South Africa.

"The way things are done says a lot about the vision and the growth of the club," added the Zimbabwean stopper.

Above all else Murambadoro has embraced the challenge that has come with joining AmaZulu at this stage in the season. That AmaZulu are fighting to avoid relegation has already been well documented and Murambadoro does not mind competing for a club that is fighting to avoid relegation. If anything that has motivated him.

"Yes there is competition in the goalkeeping department but one needs to continue working hard and it is all about the team at the end of the day," said Murambadoro.

"There are two great goalkeepers in the team and I have absolute respect for each one of them. I am also grateful for the opportunity to be coached by the best goalkeeper coach in Davies Phiri."

The next assignment for Murambadoro and Amazulu will be a fixture against Mpumalanga Black Aces on Saturday and the Zimbabwean us under no illusions about the enormity of the task that lies ahead. That said, he does not expect a hostile reception either and is perfectly comfortable with the idea of travelling to Mpumalanga this weekend.

"It is not going to be an easy game at all. Aces have not been doing well recently and I am sure that they will be aiming at bouncing back against us," he said.

"I will be treating this game just like any other games that I have played. Yes Aces was my home back then, but now AmaZulu is my new home and I owe so much to them. If given an opportunity I will give it my best."
