AmaZulu fire coach Palmgren



AmaZulu announced on Monday the termination of coach Roger Palmgren’s contract with immediate effect.

The Usuthu general manager, Peter O'Connor, confirmed the changes at the Durban club.

“We met with the coach this morning (Monday) and advised him that his services have been terminated with immediate effect and informed the players and the technical team of what has happened.

"Fani Madida will be caretaker coach until we have announced the new coach, which will hopefully be will soon,” said O’Connor.

Under the Swede’s watch, AmaZulu recorded two wins with one coming from a cup competition in the Telkom Knockout and a league game respectively.

AmaZulu’s first league win came from a fixture played while Palmgren was on leave attending a family bereavement in Sweden.

Overall, Usuthu have collected nine points in 12 matches and face Black Leopards on 5 December 2012 away from home in their next league tie.
