Magubane: We are winners & won’t give up


AmaZulu FC midfielder, Sphelele Magubane, has reflected on his first six months with the club.

The 27-year-old joined Usuthu midway through the current 2019/20 campaign which has been suspended indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Magubane moved to the club on a free transfer after parting ways with AmaZulu’s KwaZulu-Natal rivals, Lamontville Golden Arrows in January 2020.

The speedy winger made five appearances in the Absa Premiership for Usuthu, before the competition was halted last March.

“I have not performed badly this season, but I know that I can do even better and help the team,” Magubane said.

“The thing is I was out of action for quite some time. So, I’m still lacking match fitness which is something that I will work on.”

Magubane left Arrows without making a single appearance for the team this season having struggled with injuries.

The left-footed player discussed AmaZulu’s current position on the Absa Premiership standings, with the team placed 15th which is the relegation play-off spot.

“Well, every family goes through a rough patch or tough season in our case. So, we are facing a struggle to survive in the league,” he added.

“However, it is about how we overcome the challenge we are facing or how we handle the situation, we are currently facing.”

Magubane is confident that the team will retain its status in the South African top-flight league when football resumes in the country.

“Definitely, we are winners and we do not quit,” the former FC Cape Town City player stressed.

“I have no doubt that we will stay up in the PSL when the season resumes. We have a good squad with a lot of quality players.”
