Cape Town - Having penned a three-year deal with the club on Wednesday, new AmaZulu head coach Jozef Vukusic is confident of improving the players at his disposal.

The 55-year-old replaced Cavin Johnson at the helm and will be assisted by Mabhuti Khenyeza, who was a member of the previous technical team.

The Slovak is a familiar face in South Africa after leading Polokwane City to a fifth-place finish in the league last season

"It is a good challenge to work in this league,” Vukusic told the official AmaZulu website.

“The target is to play attractive football. I am happy with the squad and players. I know the statistics have not been good and the target is to turn that around."

Usuthu have not won a game all season and are bottom of the log, and Vukusic will face a tough ask in the opening weeks, with matches against Kaizer Chiefs, SuperSport United and Cape Town City on the horizon.

"I know the team from the outside but it’s important to learn about it from the inside," Vukusic added.

"My work starts immediately. My hope is that every day, every session, the players improve and results will surely come."
