AmaZulu have sacked Brandon Truter as head coach in the wake of Wednesday’s 1-0 defeat to KZN rivals Richards Bay.

Truter was initially handed the reins on a caretaker basis in March before being appointed to the role permanently during the off-season.

Usuthu made an impressive start to the new campaign under his guidance, going unbeaten in their opening four matches, which included a run of three straight wins.

However, the Durban outfit have struggled for results of late and the derby loss to the Natal Rich Boyz extended their winless streak in the top flight to five outings.

Truter departs with the team sitting ninth in the standings, eight points adrift of league leaders Mamelodi Sundowns after nine games.

“AmaZulu Football Club would like to announce that it has parted ways with head coach Brandon Truter,” the club confirmed in a statement on Thursday.

“The 52-year-old was in charge of the team for just over five months. He impressed since taking over the reins following the departure of Benni McCarthy in March.

“However, the current season has proved to be difficult and the team has recorded just three DStv Premiership wins.

“We thank him for his cooperation and hard work for the club and wish him luck in his future career.”
