AmaZulu FC have given in to the players’ demands on Ramahlwe Mphahlele just a day after ringing coaching changes at the club.

Usuthu demoted head coach Romain Folz to the position of technical director after a string of poor results.

Ayanda Dlamini, who previously served as his assistant, takes over on an interim basis for the last six games.

But before the demotion, Folz reportedly recommended that the club axe Ramahlwe Mphahlele and Keagan Buchanan.

However, players registered unhappiness over the decision when they engaged management on Monday.

In a sharp turn of events, the former Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns defender is back in the fold.

Usuthu are understood to have reversed their decision to let go of ‘Rama’, and a local publication FARPost, spotted Mphahlele in training with Usuthu on Wednesday.

SN24 has been informed that Mphahlele could be part of the team to face Cape Town City in the DStv Premiership on Sunday.

The publication reported: “Romain Folz had ordered the club to dismiss the players. However, the players and the fans weren’t happy with the decision.

“It is also understood that Mphahlele and Buchanan were on the agenda of the meeting held on Monday with the club revisiting its decision on them.”

After cutting ties with Kaizer Chiefs, the 33-year-old defender joined the Durban-based side in August 2022.

Mphahlele has been one of the consistent performers for AmaZulu this season, featuring 22 times across all competitions. He was also on target once this season.

Last week AmaZulu also did a U-turn on Lehlohonolo Majoro, who had been axed with Buchanan and Mphahlele.

Club president Sandile Zungu said they didn’t want the veteran striker to leave on a “bad note” after being a great servant to the club.

Majoro was in action when AmaZulu went down 1-0 to Swallows in a DStv Premiership match on Saturday night at the Moses Mabhida Stadium. With six games to go, Usuthu will be looking to bounce back to winning ways and come back under the stewardship of Dlamini.
