Zakri back, Khenyeza still in the dugout

Transfer News

Maritzburg head coach Muhsin Ertugral earlier this month revealed Zakri was putting his livelihood in jeopardy by failing to report for duty after the festive break.

However, the Ivorian attacker has since returned to the relegation-threatened outfit.

"Yes, Zakri is back and soon he will be back on the pitch," said Kadodia.

Kadodia also said negotiations are ongoing with AmaZulu to deploy Khenyeza upfront this season.

Khenyeza recently called time on his career when on the books of Usuthu, paving the way for him to become an assistant coach at Maritzburg under Ertugral in the new year.

The Team of Choice, though, are now looking to use the 36-year-old on the park.

"We had injury issues and we approached AmaZulu for a favour to allow us to play Khenyeza again," Kadodia said.

"We are still negotiating. Khenyeza can't play for now."

Khenyeza is the PSL's all-time second top scorer with 110 goals - 13 goals shy of AmaZulu's Siyabonga Nomvethe.

Maritzburg are rooted to the bottom of the Absa Premiership table with 11 points from 18 games, having lost 2-0 at fellow strugglers Chippa United on Saturday.
