AmaZulu have recalled four players but Lehlonolo Majoro remains under suspension for the clash with Kaizer Chiefs at FNB Stadium on Saturday.

Of the five suspended for poor attitude at the end of the month, four have had their suspension lifted - namely Michael Morton, Jabulani Ncobeni, Thembela Sikhakhane and Nhlanhla Vilakazi.

Majoro is the only one not to have been recalled from suspension and according to an IOL source, it is because the former Chiefs attacker has failed to show an improved attitude.

"Majoro uyadedela [he is arrogant] and that's why they decided not to recall him. He will continue to train on his own. The rest are back and they look positive," the source said.

AmaZulu media officer, Brilliant Mkhathini confirmed the news to the same source.

"Yes, it is true that Sikhakhane, Ncobeni, Vilakazi and Morton are back with the first team. Majoro is still not back but I'll have to get more information from the management regarding his state," Mkhathini said.

Usuthu are currently in something of a crisis, having placed their Slovakian coach Jozef Vukusic 'on special leave' with Ayanda Dlamini having been appointed as head coach on a temporary basis.

There has been talk of former Chippa United manager Norman Mapeza taking the reins at the Durban-based club, but caretaker boss Dlamini refuted the claims.

"No, it is not true that Mapeza is coming to us. We are not talking to any coach right now. I think people are speculating because I saw that he is in Durban," said Dlamini.

"We can't hire someone while we still have a coach. The coach was not fired but is on a special leave.

"There's an investigation that is on-going after the allegations that were raised by the players. He is on a special leave until the 13th (of March)."

Ayanda Dlamini's assistant is veteran goalkeeper Moeneeb Josephs.
