AmaZulu have announced a shake-up to their technical team, with Roman Folz redeployed as technical director and Ayanda Dlamini taking over as interim head coach.

Folz cast doubt on his future at the club after failing to show up for training on Tuesday following his side’s disappointing 1-0 defeat to Swallows at the Moses Mabhida Stadium three days earlier.

The French-Moroccan tactician had only recently been handed a new three-year contract despite only joining Usuthu on October 9, initially until the end of the current season.

The KZN outfit have struggled for results of late, winning just two of their last 10 matches in the DStv Premiership after going unbeaten in Folz’s first five outings at the helm.

However, AmaZulu president Sandile Zungu decided not to sack the 32-year-old, instead rejigging his role and that of assistant coach Dlamini, who will oversee first-team matters for the remainder of the campaign.

“AmaZulu president Sandile Zungu has announced changes to the club’s head coach role, with assistant coach Ayanda Dlamini appointed interim head coach, while Romain Folz has been redeployed to the role of technical director, advising the president on the technical aspects of AmaZulu’s Vision 2032,” a statement from the club read.

“[Dlamini’s] his mandate is to fight for the remaining 18 points that are on offer. With Folz, there are many aspects that we want to continue with from him. I have retained him as a technical director, primarily to advise the president on the technical aspects of vision 2032 until the end of the season. He will be expected not to interfere with the day-to-day running of the team.”
