Cape Town - AmaZulu captain Carlington Nyadombo admits that the players do feel some responsibility for the axing of Craig Rosslee as coach.

The 44-year-old was relieved of his duties on Wednesday after nearly two weeks of gardening leave, with assistant coach Wilfred Mugeyi placed in temporary charge.

"It's very sad that he's left the club," Nyadombo said. "Changing coaches, especially when you are very down, is not easy. To come back is very tough, but we have to deal with it and strive to improve the position of the club.

"I think we have been our own enemies, it's just the attitude that has been bad. We've had a meeting about it and we're ready to move forward now."

Fellow countryman Mugeyi has been in charge since of training while Rosslee has been on leave and even oversaw their first win of the season in a Telkom Knockout last-16 clash against Bloemfontein Celtic on October 3.

Nyadombo has backed the assistant coach to get the club out of their current slump. They are bottom of the Premiership table and remain the only club without a win.

"It's up to us as players to make him a good coach because we are the ones that are playing," the defender added. "He can only do 10 percent of the job, the other 90 percent is us as the players.

"But I think he has a great chance to succeed."
