McCarthy warns of January clearout at Amazulu

Amazulu coach Benni McCarthy says that the club will look to strengthen in attack before the end of the month.

McCarthy claimed that as a result, players will be on their way out as Amazulu are not keen on maintaining an excessively large squad.

McCarthy to bring in new blood

Amazulu are reportedly eager to offload some of their younger players, although it is unclear if they will be loaned out, released or sold.

Somilia Ntsundwana, Andre De Jong, Mario Booysen are rumoured to be the players who could leave in the next two weeks.

“We need to stop drawing the games we should be winning, so we are looking at attacking options out there. We are looking to strengthen and definitely players will be leaving AmaZulu FC this time,” McCarthy said.

“Yes of course we don’t want deprive or stop players from getting game-time and that, so yeah we have a great squad and will be looking at offloading some players, give them an opportunity to play elsewhere you know.

“We are also looking at a few possibilities where we can strengthen because as good and solid as the team is, we can do with some top quality players, one or two coming in to strengthen the squad even more to be tougher to beat.”

Amazulu went on a spending spree at the outset of the season in a bid to secure a top-eight finish for the club’s new owners.

Usuthu head into their clash with SuperSport United occupying tenth spot on the log but some of their star players have called for patience.

Amazulu fans need to be patient

Former Orlando Pirates man Luvuyo Memela is one of the players who have made an impact, scoring six goals so far this term.

“Mindset, we are ready for the game, we know we need to get three points, but what is important is to focus on ourselves and give the same performances we produced in the past games even though we didn’t take our chances,” Memela said.

“Make sure we convert them and get maximum points, but playing SuperSport United, you can’t go there with no respect and thinking it’s going to be an easy game because it won’t be easy.

“We know it’s all because of this pandemic, but what is important is showing them on the pitch that we want to win the game and stay consistent,” Memela added.

“We need them even though they can’t be with us in the stadiums. We need to win games for them and urge them to be patient with us.”
