New AmaZulu FC central midfielder Michael Morton is hoping to use his experience to benefit Usuthu in the new campaign.

Morton joined the club on a season long loan deal from SuperSport United a fortnight ago as Usuthu strengthened their squad ahead of the 2017/18 season.

With eight years of PSL experience under his belt, Morton has shown incredible signs of an experienced and professional player throughout his career.

“It’s a new challenge and I hope to make an impact here,” Morton told AmaZulufc.net.

“I want to use my experience to help the club achieve its objectives for this season,” the former Orlando Pirates and Bidvest Wits player continued.

AmaZulu finished fifth in the National First Division (NFD) last season and the club bought Thanda Royal Zulu’s Premier Soccer League (PSL) status.

Usuthu, who are now under the guidance of Cavin Johnson, will face Free State Stars in their first 2017/18 Absa Premiership match at the King Zwelithini Stadium in Durban on Saturday.

“The most important thing is to adapt quickly in the PSL because the NFD is different from the top flight,” the 28-year-old added.

“We have to ensure that we fight for a victory in every game that we play. If we are consistent then the club will retain its status in the PSL this season. It will be tough, but we have a good squad that can compete.

“We have Cup competitions which are also very important. We also want to do well in such tournaments.”

Kick-off between AmaZulu and Stars will be at 15h00 CAT.
