New 3-year deal for Sithebe


Siyethemba Sithebe has extended his stay at AmaZulu.

The 26-year-old put pen to paper on a three-year contract extension which will see him stay at the club till 2022.

Sithebe joined Usuthu from Mbombela United in 2017 and his gritty performances in the heart of midfield has seen him rack up 52 appearances for the club already.

“Siyathemba has grown tremendously since joining the club. We are very happy to extended his contract with us, we believe there is plenty more to come from him,” AmaZulu General Manager Lunga Sokhela said.

“We believe the club is moving in the right direction since returning the top flight. Under coach Cavin Johnson we have seen an upward curve in our performances. The upcoming season is another opportunity for us to keep building,” Sokhela said.
