Durban – Craig Rosslee has been appointed head coach of Premiership strugglers AmaZulu, the Durban club announced on Friday.

The 42-year-old signed a two-and-a-half year contract, replacing Swede Roger Palmgren, who was sacked on Monday after 14 months in charge at Usuthu.

Rosslee's first task will be to steer the club clear from the Premiership relegation zone. They sit bottom of the log with just nine points from 12 games. – Sapa
