DURBAN – They may have done their 67 minutes for Mandela last week, but AmaZulu would love nothing more than to benefit from some charity and good fortune by winning silverware, something they haven’t done since 1992.
That is 27 years, the same time the dearly departed South African statesman spent in imprisonment.
To get themselves out of ‘jail’ though, AmaZulu won’t need international support or local pressure placed on a stubborn, authoritarian leadership.
They will have to do it themselves, a fact general manager, Dr Lunga Sokhela, is well aware of.
“We will make it clear that there must be a trophy that we will bring home this season. We will work together to achieve that. It is not only the coach’s target. It is our target as a club, management, players and the supporters.”
