AmaZulu could take some League games to Ulundi


Club PRO Philani Mabaso has confirmed that League officials led, by Ronnie Schloss are expected in KwaZulu Natal this week to do an inspection at the Ulundi Stadium that was upgraded recently.

“The Ulundi municipality has done well to renovate the stadium and put the turf in good condition for football. We are expecting Ronnie Schloss with the rest of his team to do inspection this week and I am confident that they will give us the green light to use the stadium for some of our league fixtures this season.

“Going back to Ulundi is like going back to our roots as originally the team’s major support was based in that area. This is also a way of taking the team closer to its supporters.”

Mabaso has vowed that AmaZulu will continue from where they left off against Orlando Pirates last year December when they resume their Absa Premiership campaign next week against Mamelodi Sundowns in Durban

Usuthu and the Brazilians open the second round at King Zwelithini Stadium on Monday in what is expected to be a thrilling game.

“Almost all our players who have been nursing injuries are now back, including Mpho Maleka. The only major blow is the absence of Martin Carelse, who is still nursing his injury.”

Mabaso added that their new Zambian goalkeeper Kalililo Kakonje is expected back in the country today (Thursday) after attending the Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Ghana with the Chipolopolo.
