Zungu has promised to transform the club from relegation-threatened strugglers into a top-four powerhouse and moreover has intimated that Amazulu will remain based in KwaZulu-Natal.
“AmaZulu will no longer be a team that is fighting relegations, starting this year,” Zungu said at the announcement of the sale of Amazulu.
“If we fail to make the top four, we will have failed,” the businessman added.
