Cape Town - AmaZulu have sent shock waves through local media by replacing head coach Joey Antipas with former Platinum Stars mentor Cavin Johnson.

With just under two weeks before the opening game of the Premiership season, Johnson's arrival comes as a surprise after Antipas led Usuthu throughout some turbulent pre-season preparations.

"We'd like to wish Mr Antipas and Matore the best of luck in their future endeavors, we thank them for their time spent with us," AmaZulu General Manager Lunga Sokhela told the club's official website upon breaking the news.

After finishing in fifth place in the National First Division under the tutelage of the Zimbabwean mentor, the KZN side bought their way back into the top-flight by acquiring the status of NFD league winners Thanda Royal Zulu for a reported R42 million.

However, the arrival of Johnson signals a real statement of intent by the club's hierarchy, who are seemingly not prepared to take any chances regarding their top-flight status upon their return.
