AmaZulu FC central midfielder Michael Morton is looking forward to a productive off-season.

The experienced player was one of Usuthu’s key players during the recent 2017/18 campaign.

The KwaZulu-Natal giants decided to offer Morton a two-year permanent deal which he signed in February 2018.

The former South Africa youth international had joined AmaZulu on a season-long loan deal from SuperSport United in August, 2017.

Morton, who is a former Orlando Pirates and Bidvest Wits player, has disclosed that he is a process of building an online personal training program.

“Here’s to a productive off-season,” Morton said.

“In the process of building an online nutrition/personal training program.

“For anyone ranging from your weekend warriors, up and coming athletes to top level professionals.”

The 29-year-old made 23 appearances in the league for Usuthu during the 2017/18 campaign – netting twice in the process.

He helped Usuthu finish eighth in the Absa Premiership and they qualified for next season’s MTN8 Cup.

However, Ajax Cape Town were found guilty of fielding Tendai Ndoro against Polokwane City, SuperSport United and Platinum Stars.

As result, the three clubs were all handed three points as they all protested against Ajax’s decision to field Ndoro against them.

The extra points for SuperSport meant that they leapfrogged AmaZulu into the top half, while Usuthu moved down to ninth place.
