AmaZulu head coach Romain Folz has clinched an unprecedented record of becoming the first coach in the PSL to qualify for the MTN8 final without winning a single match.

Folz is yet to win his first match as a head coach in South Africa after joining Marumo Gallants before relocating to Durban with AmaZulu.

The 32-year-old coach secured a 0-0 draw against Kaizer Chiefs in an MTN 8 semi-final in Durban on Sunday to advance to the final on the away goal rule.

Usuthu are set to meet Orlando Pirates in the competition's final at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on November 5.

"It's not a problem because, as I said, we scored in our other games, except this one.

"But most importantly, I would be worried if we were not creating chances.

"If you are not dangerous to your opponents then I will have a different speech to make now.

"I don't think we are struggling in that department.

"I think we were the team with the best chances against Kaizer Chiefs.

"I don't think they had any big chances in their few situations here and there. So, I am not worried; I know it's going to come, Folz said.

The Morrocan will next face a reunion with his former team Marumo Gallants when AmaZulu travel to Polokwane for a DStv Premiership clash on Wednesday.

Kick-off is at 19:30.
