AmaZulu interim coach Ayanda Dlamini has praised the work ethic of his charges since taking over the reins last week in the first team.
Never would the football scribes and experts have foretold what transpired at the FNB Stadium on 07 March.
Not only did they inject life into their hopes of climbing away from the bottom of the Absa Premiership log standings, AmaZulu brought to an end a 13 year long winless streak against Kaizer Chiefs through Bongi Ntuli’s solitary strike in the first half.
A calm but highly elated Ayanda has showered the plaudits back to his team for a hearty display against the current log leaders.
“The win was very good one for us, we needed it. We knew going to FNB wasn’t going to be an easy one,’’
‘’We showed a lot of fighting spirit, I am pleased with what the boys have shown me so far, that was through a lot of hard work and dedication,’’ he added.
The former AmaZulu striker was also thankful in the way the players received him but says it will serve as a positive tool to bank on going into the tough road ahead in the coming fixtures.
’’The boys received me very well, I told them that it doesn’t matter who the opposition is, we just need to fight to get points so, that’s what we wanted to achieve and we did against Chiefs. That is the mindset we need going forward, ’ said Dlamini.
