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."
