While Folz was recently handed a new long-term contract by the club, the expectations are for the mentor to turn the fortunes of the club in line with president Sandile Zungu’s bigger plans for the KwaZulu-Natal giants to become among the top four clubs in the country.
The French-Moroccan coach’s new deal runs until 2026 and Zungu said Fohloza, as Folz is fondly known, is the coach he can trust in his plan to build Usuthu for 2032.
In 14 matches in the league under Folz, AmaZulu have won three, drawn eight and lost three.
