Players like Andile Khumalo did not get much game time, will be loaned to other teams where he will get a chance to impress. Nkanyiso Cele and Dumisani Zwane didn't contribute significantly last season.

AmaZulu General Manager, Peter O’Connor confirmed the news about the changes that are being made to the team.

“We had a serious chat with the directors and with the technical team, and clearly we’ve had to make some radical changes to plan ahead. It’s one of those unfortunate things for some of the players, but we believe these changes are necessary and we’d like to wish the players well,” said O’Connor.
Talented goalkeeper Mbongeni Mzimela has also been granted his wish of seeking a club of his choice due to finding a breakthrough difficult.
