Robertson impressed by Usuthu coach Antipas

AmaZulu’s promising defender Alan Robertson is already impressed by their new Zimbabwean coach Joey Antipas.

The tactician was announced as the new AmaZulu head coach towards the end of the 2015/16 season, but he only began working with the players three months ago.

“Well, everything looks good,” Robertson told

In his first competitive game in charge of Usuthu, Antipas’ side recorded a 2-1 win over Black Leopards in their 2016/17 National First Division (NFD) season opener.

Following last season’s disappointments, Usuthu are now hoping to enjoy some success under Antipas by winning the NFD title this season and getting promotion to the Absa Premiership.

Antipas was previously in charge of Chicken Inn in his home country. The club won the 2015 Zimbabwean Premier Soccer League title under his guidance.

“He’s a good coach with lots of experience having done very well in Zimbabwe,” the 22-year-old former University of Pretoria player added.

Antipas is currently busy preparing AmaZulu for their second competitive game which is against Cape Town All Stars on Sunday afternoon.

The NFD encounter will be played at the Parow Park in the city of Cape Town.
