AmaZulu compared to Manchester City

Premiership

AmaZulu coach Jozef Vukusic has compared his side to English Premier League defending champions Manchester City as they continue to struggle to score goals.

Usuthu have not been good in front of goal as a team, with striker Bongi Ntuli scoring all their goals this season so far.

Vukusic, speaking with media after their goalless KwaZulu-Natal derby draw, said lacking quality finishing in the final third is even happening to Manchester City at the moment.

The Serbian coach believes things will change soon and tips former Kaizer Chiefs winger Ovidy Karuru to be amongst the players who might help Ntuli up front.

"Not only here, even at Manchester City they have enough quality but in the last third they are not converting chances," Vukusic said.

"Of course it's about that quality but we work on that. Ntuli's statistics are okay but all the players must improve, so that is our daily work to improve.

"I try to improve every single player and I can say Ovidy could score, it's just a question of quality, but we made two steps forward with him."

With the transfer window coming up, Vukusic says the club will decide whether to add more players up front or not.

"I agree it's about quality in finishing. If we will do something in January, let's see guys what we do, let's see what is possible. We will discuss with management and work on that."
