The 23-year-old Ntuli comes to AmaZulu from Mamelodi
Sundowns, where he has only played about 27 minutes of football this season.
His tenure at AmaZulu will present a different kind of challenge for him but it
will at least be in familiar territory - Ntuli used to play for Golden Arrows.
"The good thing is that I know the coach believes in me
and that’s enough motivation for me because I just want to get game time and
help the team," said Ntuli.
Ntuli admits that adapting to his new surroundings has been
rather easy for him, as he is effectively playing at home. He hopes that will
help him live up to his billing as a formidable striker.
"I’ve been welcomed by the guys nicely as well, it’s
good that with a few of them we know each other well.
"There’s a lot I will learn from the strikers and
senior players in the team, while I believe they too will learn something from
playing with me," he added.
Unlike many within the football fraternity, Ntuli still
believes that AmaZulu can secure their place in the Premiership this season and
has every intention of doing just that.
"There’s still a big chance for us a team to come out
of the bottom. I do believe in the guys and if we work together as one the team
can survive," said Ntuli.
