Dlamini eager to play remaining games in KZN

AmaZulu interim manager Ayanda Dlamini would welcome the decision to complete the 2019/20 Premier Soccer League season in KwaZulu-Natal.

Discussions surrounding the validity to play all remaining games in one province, so as to mitigate the effects of the coronavirus, are currently underway.

Gauteng and KZN have emerged as the two most suitable provinces to complete the season.

KwaZulu-Natal boasts a number of training facilities and match venues as well as accommodation for all players and staff and hosting games in the province could provide a much-needed boost for relegation-threatened Usuthu.

Dlamini told Isolezwe: "We would be happy if the season can be finished in Durban because that is our home.

"We are familiar with the weather and all the stadiums. That can help us to fight in the remaining games in Durban because there will be no game that we call an away match."

Dlamini added: "You will remember that there are many chances that we can finish the games behind closed doors without the supporters.

"We know that many of AmaZulu supporters are very important to us. We need them but because of the situation, we will have to accept that. We know their hearts will be with us."

AmaZulu headed into the enforced break in 15th place on the 16-team table with just 23 points.
