CAPE TOWN — Relegated AmaZulu will know the status of their players’ futures by the end of the week, general manager Peter O’Connor has revealed.
Usuthu are currently engaged in talks with their playing personnel, days after it was confirmed that title sponsors Spar will be staying on for the 2015/16 National First Division campaign.
The Durban giants were relegated from the South African top-flight on the last day of the season, the first time they have dropped out of the division since their elevation to it in 2006.
They have already announced head coach Steve Barker will lead them next year, but the senior men who he will count on in the NFD remain a mystery.
According to the NFD rules, all clubs must have at least five players under the age of 23 in their starting line-ups. Several senior men like captain Robyn Johannes and Ayanda Dlamini have indicated a willingness to stay, but their fates will be a lot clearer come the weekend. — Sport24
