AmaZulu midfielder Butholezwe Ncube commits future to the club

After becoming a stalwart of Usuthu, the club has handed the Zimbabwean a new deal

AmaZulu have extended the contract of defensive midfielder Butholezwe Ncube.

The 26-year-old has been on the books of Usuthu since 2016, becoming a stalwart of the Durban-based outfit.

Ncube, who was previously on the books of Zimbabwe outfit Tsholotsho FC has appeared in five of AmaZulu’s six games this season appearances even contributing one goal to the cause.

Nonetheless, his exploits have subsequently seen him earn a new deal with the club, which is set to keep him in KwaZulu-Natal until 2022.

“The club has extended the services of hardworking 26-year-old Zimbabwean defensive midfielder, Butholezwe Ncube for another three years," AmaZulu recently confirmed on their official website.

Meanwhile, Ncube has expressed his delight after putting pen-to-paper on a new deal but reveals that he will not rest on his laurels.

“I’m happy to be here and I’ll always work hard for the team. I want to succeed in fulfilling (many) things with the team. I won’t relax because now I have a new contract, I’m going to be pushing hard for the best of the team,” Ncube added.

Ncube though, won’t have much time to gloat about his new deal as AmaZulu are back in action on Tuesday evening as they take on Maritzburg United in a KZN Derby.

However, while AmaZulu have had a decent start to their Premier Soccer League (PSL) campaign, following their failure to comply with a Fifa ruling, they have since been docked six league points, which leaves them firmly at the bottom with just a solitary point after six games.

Ncube will hope that he can help his side gain maximum points against their neighbours, who are yet to find their best form this season.
