Speaking to FARPost, Martin, criticised by fans for his complaints about referees, said the side can finish eighth while two defeats could place them in a relegation battle.

Martin said:

“So, I think the motivation should be there. And our intention is to try to collect as many points as possible. I think we don’t depend on us to finish in the top eight, but if we are collecting points, we might have that chance.”

Local football fans blast coach Martin

Local football fans took to social media to say the AmaZulu coach does not have the skills to guide Usuthu to a top-eight finish.

Emzet Zulu does not rate coach Martin:

“3/10. He does not win away games and has poor performances in home games. He needs an ultimatum. Minimum 50 points next season or leave.”
