George Maluleka’s word of honour to AmaZulu

Experienced midfielder George Maluleka has given AmaZulu his word of honour ahead of the 2023/24 season.

Usuthu had an unpleasant run in the past season. They’re looking to amend things ahead of next season with the club having already made some changes.

AmaZulu recently announced that PSL legend, Ayanda Dlamini wouldn’t continue leading the side in the dugout. Meanwhile, Romain Folz resigned as the club’s Technical Advisor.

Last season, it was reported multiple times that Folz, who was the head coach before Dlamini, had issues with some players in the squad.

It was also alleged that some of the club’s poor performances were due to the tensions in the locker room with the team not playing for the coach.

Maluleka has insisted they never went to play with the mentality of losing. He says they’ll do their utmost to make AmaZulu fans happy again.


“There’s no player who plays football going in with the mentality of losing the game or just being normal,” said Maluleka.

“Whenever we walk on that field, we want to win. Obviously, there are a lot of dynamics that happen as you guys saw some of them.

“Going deeper there’s a lot that happened. We know that we owe a lot to our supporters.

“Because it was a very disappointing season. From the AmaZulu team. We owe a lot to the AmaZulu supporters.

“How lucky are we that we have another season to try and redeem ourselves? 

“So, that’s all I can say for now that we owe them a lot and we need to make sure that we make them happy again.

“Because it’s the only way we can be able to uplift ourselves. If we start playing well, then they will end up starting to come to the stadium.

“And with the team that we have or that we had, there’s a lot of potential. So, we’ll see now what happens with the changes obviously when they announce.

“But I still believe we have a lot to offer.”

Maluleka believes the negativity he’s heard about the team will help him build confidence to prove naysayers wrong.

“We need to prove them wrong, that’s why I love negativity,” he continued.

“Because now, you have to go out there and show them.”
