AmaZulu coach Romain Folz has been backed to make a success of his time in the DStv Premiership after being tasked with his second job in the league this season.

Folz (32) has only been in domestic football for six months, but such has been his value that after his short stay at Marumo Gallants he was immediately recruited by AmaZulu.

He has quickly become a draw specialist with nine draws from a dozen matches in charge at both clubs, but the true evidence of his qualities will be seen when the league resumes this weekend after the World Cup break.

Usuthu will be the last team in action when they visit Sekhukhune United on Saturday evening.

"I have confidence in Romain’s work and the value that he can bring to a team," says Sebastien Migne in a conversation with KickOff.

Migne had a stint with Marumo at the beginning of last season and is now the assistant coach to Rigobert Song in the Cameroon national team which played at the World Cup.

"I wanted to bring him to Marumo but the board kept me waiting until I wasn’t sure any more about continuing at the club.

"I worked with him as the video analyst for a year at (Chamois) Niort (French Ligue 2 club) during the covid times and I value his input.

"Being where he is now, I think his input will be appreciated and he will make a good impact there.

"He is coaching in a league that I still wish to return to in the future.

"There is no need to doubt him because of his age.

"He knows his job and will make a difference and change the mindset that some might have about him and football in general," says Migne who is French like Folz.
