AmaZulu FC midfielder Michael Morton believes that the team will benefit well from the current FIFA international break.

Usuthu have been busy preparing for their Absa Premiership clash with Kaizer Chiefs which will be played on Wednesday, 22 November 2017.

Morton feels that the two-week break will allow the Durban-based side’s injured players to recover from their respective injuries.

“I believe that the international break came at the right time because we have quite a few players, who are out injured,” Morton told

“There are guys who have struggled with niggling and major injuries this season.

Ovidy Karuru, Tapelo Nyongo and Sedat Ouro-Akoriko are some of Usuthu players, who have been out nursing injuries.

“So, some of the guys we could be back after the break which is good for the team,” the 28-year-old added.

Prior to the current season, Morton joined Usuthu on a season-long loan deal from Pretoria-based side SuperSport United.

“I have enjoyed my stay here in Durban. It took my family some time to settle down,” the former Orlando Pirates player indicated.

“But we have since adapted well,” he concluded.

Usuthu will host Chiefs at the King Zwelithini Stadium. Kick-off is at 19h30.
