Vukusic confident of turning the tide

New AmaZulu head coach, Jozef Vukusic was unveiled to the Durban media on Wednesday after a penning a three-year deal with the club.

The Slovak replaces Cavin Johnson at the helm and will be assisted by former Usuthu striker, Mabhuti Khenyeza who had served in the previous technical team.

The 55-year-old is no stranger to South African football having guided Polokwane City to a fifth place finish in the league last season before heading back home.

“I am grateful to be here in a big soccer city.

It is a good challenge to work in this league,” Vukusic said.

“The target is to play attractive football. I am happy with the squad and players. I know the statistics have not been good and the target is to turn that around,” he added.

He arrives at the club with Usuthu bottom of the log, without a victory in the opening five games of the campaign but remains optimistic ahead of a tough string of fixtures.

Usuthu host Kaizer Chiefs next Tuesday and then face high flying, SuperSport United and Cape Town City.

“I know the team from the outside but it’s important to learn about it from the inside,” Vukusic said.

“My work starts immediately. My hope is that everyday, every session, the players improve and results will surly come,” he concluded.

AmaZulu play Kaizer Chiefs at the King Zwelithini Stadium on 24 September. Kick-off is at 3pm, tickets are R60 and available at TicketPro.
