AmaZulu have distanced themselves from reports they are on the verge of appointing Norman Mapeza.
Last week, Mapeza's agent Gibson Mahachi claimed Usuthu are interested in appointing the former Chippa United boss.
However, the club has now dismissed suggestions they are in talks with the ex-Zimbabwe tactician.
"At this time it’s unfortunate that some members of the media are continuing to create false stories," AmaZulu through general manager Lunga Sokhela said in a statement.
"We have never discussed anything with Mapeza and that is the bottom line," concluded Sokhela.
The Durban club has been on the hunt for a new permanent coach ever since Jozef Vukusic was granted 'special leave' earlier this year.
Since then, Ayanda Dlamini and Moeneeb Josephs took charge of the first-team and oversaw the club's victory over Kaizer Chiefs on 7 March.
When the league was suspended over the coronavirus outbreak last month, AmaZul were placed 15th on the log with23 points from 24 games.
