Morton enjoys working with Usuthu coach Johnson

AmaZulu FC midfielder Michael Morton says he wants to make a positive impact during his spell with Usuthu.

The 28-year-old player, who is on a season-long loan deal from SuperSport United, has been a consistent performer in Usuthu’s central midfield.

Morton has reunited with Cavin Johnson, who was in charge of SuperSport between 2013 and 2014. Johnson was appointed Usuthu new head coach prior to the current campaign.

“I have worked with Cavin before and I like his coaching methodology. I was looking forward to working with him again,” Morton told

Morton is a well-travelled player having started his career at Orlando Pirates, before going on to play for Bidvest Wits, Maritzburg United as well as SuperSport.

The hard-working midfielder, who has started Usuthu’s four league games, is nicknamed ‘Duracell’ and he has finally disclosed where he got the humorous name.

“Well, I got this nickname a few years ago. I was still playing for Maritzburg United. The fans started calling me ‘Duracell’ during my spell with the club,” he revealed.

The former South Africa youth international is now eager to make his mark at Usuthu as the team looks to bounce back from Sunday’s defeat to Lamontville Golden Arrows.

“My message to the AmaZulu supporters is that I will help the team grind out good results and make them proud. I want to make a positive impact here,” he concluded.

Morton and his AmaZulu team-mates will take on the defending Absa Premiership champions Wits in a league match at the King Zwelithini Stadium on Wednesday.
