AMAZULU FC have made a decision to part ways with coach Benni McCarthy, the Siya crew can reveal.

According to Siya sources, the decision comes on the back of a disappointing campaign, after the Usuthu finished second on the log last term.

The AmaZulu management is understood to have expressed its displeasure with the club's current form, with McCarthy vocal in the media about selection struggles.

McCarthy was appointed in December 2020 and after a promising maiden campaign, there were high expectations for the KZN outfit.
