The club has appointed its former striker, Ayanda Dlamini as a youth coach with the view to add experienced football personnel to the club’s development structures.
The 33-year-old KwaCeza born striker begins his new duties at Usuthu this week, and also sees him officially retiring from professional football.
As a token of appreciation to the club the former striker presented AmaZulu FC with a signed boot and jersey which was accepted by Senior Club official and former General Manager, Peter O’ Connor.
AmaZulu FC Youth Technical Director and MDC Coach Ronnie Moroka has hailed the club’s move to rope in Dlamini.
“His work ethic and experience will add a new dimension to our development structures.”
“Without a doubt I believe the appointment is a positive step for the club and for our younger players who will learn from him both on and off the field,” said Moroka.
The man well known by his nickname, Cobra will be assistant coach to the AmaZulu U19s who are campaigning in the SAFA SAB League.
He will be working alongside Head Coach, Thabiso Makhetha with the U19s as well as in other community based football coaching initiatives and scouting programs alongside Ayanda Dlamini in the scouting department.
The former Nongoma Citizen goal poacher developed a knack of troubling his opponents from the day he joined the KZN club at the beginning of the 2009/10 season.
He has played over 174 official PSL matches, scoring over 35 goals before leaving Usuthu at the end of the 2015/16 season. Last season he played for Bloemfontein Celtic.Share
