Following the club’s relegation to the National First Division, Tsepo Liphoko spoke to the AmaZulu website about his plans and how he feels about next season.
There was hope that Usuthu could remain in the PSL, did you expect to be relegated and how did you feel after that final game?
It was hurting and maybe still is. It is not nice to see a club like AmaZulu being relegated since it has such rich history in the PSL. We didn’t expect it to happen and we all gave it our all and fought hard. I think it’s still even painful to talk about it as there are emotions involved.
How are you dealing with the situation?
I am trying to accept the reality and to stay focused. Although the league has closed, I am working hard on keeping fit.
What are some of the plans for the future?
At the moment I can’t really say what will happen. But I am still part of AmaZulu and I am committed to delivering the best I can there.
Do you think playing in the NFD will affect your chances of going from junior international to the Bafana set up?
No I don’t think so. With a coach like Shakes Mashaba there are always opportunities for players who are excelling and working hard.
