Usuthu extend Biyela, Mkhwanazi contracts


Club PRO Philani Mabaso has confirmed to that both players have extended their contracts with Usuthu for a further two seasons.

Biyela, who has already been capped for Bafana Bafana, says he is excited about staying at AmaZulu and promises to continue working hard to help the team finish in a better position in the league.

“I never doubted that I would stay at AmaZulu. The team gave me an opportunity to taste professional football and it is good that they value my services and have given me another contract. Our wish is to win the Nedbank Cup, but we are not losing focus on improving our position in the league,” he tells

Meanwhile, defender Martin Carelse has still to renew his contract with AmaZulu.

Carelse’s contract with the KwaZulu\Natal based outfit is set to expire at the end of the season and he says he is still waiting for word from management on whether they will extend his contract.

“So far we haven’t talk about anything regarding my contract being extended, but hopefully that will happen before the end of the season,” he says.

Mabaso has dismissed reports that Neil Tovey, who the club roped into their technical team, is set to replace Clive Barker at the end of the season,but this cannot actually be verified for now.

“That’s rubbish; we don’t know where this report comes from. We are happy with Barker as our coach and we believe that he and Tovey will form a great partnership in our technical team.

“It will depend on Barker whether Tovey will sit on the bench during our games.”
