AmaZulu played friendlies in Swaziland against Mbabane Swallows and Manzini Wanderers

accreditation had a chat with the club's media officer, Brilliant Mkhathini, who explained their intentions as a club in expanding their brand and playing a part in development.

"As a club we are trying to establish a relationship with the Swaziland Football Association, our partners, and build it in terms of development. They already helped us to work with Glenwood and Ohlange high schools around Durban, and we are looking at implementing a project with Swaziland," Mkhathini explained.

"Last week from Monday we had a meeting with stakeholders from the sports ministry to local coaches and everyone involved in football, to see how we can make this relationship strong."

On travelling with the whole squad and playing two friendlies this past weekend, Mkhathini said they also looked at helping the players expose themselves in different countries with the hope to be able to face any challenge whenever they compete away.

"We also used this trip to expose our players and are hoping it will help in our away performances, which haven't been good this season. We believe with this trip we got what we wanted," he added.

AmaZulu beat Manzini Wanderers 2-0 on Saturday and drew 0-0 in a tough match against Mbabane Swallows on Sunday.

They will now shift their focus to the domestic league as they look to fight for a top-eight spot. Usuthu's next match is against Chippa United at King Zwelithini Stadium on April 6.
