Siyabonga Nomvethe breaks silence on his exit from AmaZulu FC

Former AmaZulu FC DStv Diski Challenge side coach Siyabonga Nomvethe has broken the silence on his exit from the club.

The Bafana Bafana legend, Nomvethe, saw his contract expiring at the end of June. And the club elected not to exercise it. The former striker was appointed by AmaZulu in 2020 as an assistant coach to Benni McCarthy.

He was then demoted to the DDC when the club promoted Ayanda Dlamini to take over as an assistant coach to Romain Folz. 

Nomvethe says Usuthu went through the restructuring, and he was told he wouldn’t continue. He stated he never took their decision in a bad way.


“AmaZulu had a restructuring from the management, but also my contract was going to end in June,” Nomvethe told the media as translated from isiZulu.

“And they didn’t exercise it. When I heard that it was not exercised, I had to accept what I was told that other people would be roped in.

“But they said there would be a time where they’d look at possibilities at some point if they can call me.”

Asked whether he would still consider a return to Usuthu if an opportunity came his way, he said:

“It would depend because I have a manager. We will sit down and discuss if they still need me in the future.”

Nomvethe, who’s under Mike Makaab’s Pro Sport International, says there are some non-coaching opportunities on his table. However, he added that there’s nothing concrete as of yet.

“There’s a lot, but it’s different from what I have been doing [coaching], but it’s opportunities within the sports industry,” he added.

“I can’t reveal it, no, because it’s not yet concrete at the moment. So, you can’t just talk about it. But there are big promises that I hope will succeed. And if God gives me this opportunity, I would be happy.”
