Cape Town - AmaZulu midfielder John Arwuah admits being relegated is the worst thing that can happen to a footballer after Usuthu suffered the drop last week.

The 29-year-old Ghanaian has enjoyed three full years in the Premiership after joining AmaZulu from Durban Stars in 2011, and he knows all the perks of being in the top flight.

However, now that the team will be battling it out in the National First Division next term, Arwuah knows the team will need a special kind of courage to face the new reality.

"To be honest with you, it hasn't been the best of seasons, no player or club wants to be relegated, it was the worst," said Arwuah to Football411.

"I feel that as players we failed the club.

"I have nightmares each and every night. Every time I sleep knowing that a big club like AmaZulu has been relegated, it traumatises me. I just wish that it was a bad dream."

Arwuah said that even the allegations about the match fixing did not really affect them as they knew they were already relegated.

When asked about his future with Usuthu, he said as far as he is concerned he is still has a contract with AmaZulu, and that should any PSL club inquire about his services, they will have to speak to his employers.

He added: "Everyone wants to stay in the PSL including me as well, but if there is a team that is interested in me they will have to speak to the management of the club, but for now I am with AmaZulu.

"And the team have shown indications that they want me to stay with the club. I have been having meeting with them to discuss that, then will take it from there."
