Rosslee’s position at Usuthu has been under scrutiny after poor performances and according to KickOff, the coach feels that the club can change coaches but cannot change mistakes made in the game.

“I was the one that first got the team out of trouble, I was the one who got the team next to the top-eight position last year and it's unfortunate we find ourselves in this position,” Rosslee said after their 2-0 defeat.

“I was the man for the last two seasons.”

“We know how the game is played, it's a merry-go-round, that is the way it is. The fact of the matter, we can change the coaches but can't change the mistakes made in the park.”

The Kwazulu-Natal side travel next to Limpopo to face Polokwane City on September 13 and then visit Bidvest Wits on September 26.
