AmaZulu head coach Romain Folz says he should be judged only after the World Cup break due to the lack of conditioning of his players. 

Folz was speaking after a heavy 3-0 loss to Mamelodi Sundowns in the first semi-final of the Carling Black Label Cup at FNB Stadium on Saturday morning.

The Frenchman is finding the going tough in the Premier Soccer League, with only one win in 14 matches since his arrival – initially at Marumo Gallants at the start of the season.

Had Sundowns converted some of the clear-cut chances they created, the final scoreline could have been embarrassing for Usuthu, who have scored just one goal in their last five matches under Folz.

“I feel like most of our players are not ready physically. When you play a team that is very good on the ball and moves it around the pitch quickly, you have a lot of work to do off the ball,” defended the former Township Rollers mentor.

“If you are not ready as much, I can give you the best instruction you want–it can come from Pep Guardiola if you want, if the engine is not responding, there’s nothing you can do.

“That’s why I said when I joined the club that, the biggest challenge was to get all players at the same level physically and the break happened.”
