Barker: We needed the break

Coach of AmaZulu Steve Barker feels that the Absa Premiership break will be most beneficial to him and his players as he will be searching for new signings to strengthen the team.

This comes after Usuthu were defeated 2-1 by Moroka Swallows on Saturday night at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.

Barker said he feels that there are some players that are not performing to their maximum potential.

“I think we needed the break more than any other team, just to clear our heads and come back fresh.

“We need to learn that when we on top of our game we need to bury the opposition. Once again we lost concentration,” said Barker.

The break is expected to come with changes as well, as Barker made it clear that he needs to bring new players into the squad if they want to be in the top-flight next season.

“Look, I have no choice but to bring in new players that will strengthen the squad if we want to be in the PSL next season. We need the quality players.

“We can’t be in a situation whereby if Marc Van Heerden, Larry Horaeb and Robyn Johannes are not playing than we are in trouble.

“I have about five weeks to work with the team and in that space I will try and make sure that I push them to their peak.

“We need to win about five matches at home and maybe two on the road. This will be the hardest time of my career but we will work hard, this is football.

“We need to play our role because there is no club that is going to make favours for us. But all this is irrelevant on the situation we are in if we don’t win,” said Barker.
