AmaZulu have been linked with several high profile coaches after Ayanda Dlamini was demoted to coach the juniors on Monday. He has been at the helm since February.

The club have been linked with former Cape Town City coach Benni McCarthy and Eric Tinkler, who was recently dismissed by Maritzburg United.

Dlamini was appointed interim coach when Jozef Vukušic was fired and given the permanent job in September. However, since the arrival of a new owner the flamboyant entrepreneur Sandile Zungu in October, it seems there is a need for an equally eccentric coach.

“Coach Ayanda has done a phenomenal job since assuming the head coaching role. The passion and zeal the players have demonstrated under his tenure as head coach demonstrated that he is one of the prospects for the future,” Zungu said in a statement.

“We will continue to trust him with the advancement of our development structures because he is fully committed to [the club’s] Vision 2032. His role is very integral in ensuring that AmaZulu have a solid base of young players coming through the ranks.”

In the meantime, AmaZulu assistant coach Allan Freese will be in charge of the team for now. Usuthu, who are placed 11th on the DStv Premiership table, face provincial rivals Golden Arrows in a KwaZulu-Natal derby on December 16.
