The pressure is mounting for AmaZulu coach Cavin Johnson as the team will be preparing to face Absa Premiership log leaders Kaizer Chiefs in their next match.
Following their 1-1 draw with Golden Arrows in their KwaZulu-Natal derby match at the Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium on Saturday afternoon, AmaZulu remained in 16th spot on the log with the pressure mounting for Johnson to turn things around for the Durban-based outfit.
Usuthu are yet to win after five matches, with the team having collected only two points from a possible 15.
While talk in the football fraternity has been that Usuthu management have been unhappy with the team’s disappointing results, team manager Qedi Dlamini recently told the Siya crew that the club had confidence in Johnson to turn the fortunes of the side.
Dlamini said at the time, “As the club we are supporting the coach. We know that the team is experiencing a bad spell at the moment but we are supporting the coach. We are aware of the reports (linking Johnson with exit), but officially the club has never said that anything is going to happen regarding the coach’s contract and all that.”
AmaZulu’s match against Chiefs will be at the King Zwelithini Stadium on September 24.
