Amazulu terminate Steve Barker’s contract
Barker’s assistant coach, Delron Buckley, will be in charge of the team for the remainder of the season.
JOHANNESBURG - AmaZulu FC have decided to release coach Steve Barker from his duties following the club's failure to meet its mandate in the 2015/16 National First Division.
Barker's assistant coach, Delron Buckley, will be in charge of the team for the remainder of the season until the Head Coach post is filled, while goalkeeper coach Davies Phiri will deputize in the meantime.
He arrived at the club in 2014 from the University of Pretoria but had an unsuccessful season with the club, as they were automatically relegated to the NFD where they won just six of their league games.
Barker, who is the nephew of former Bafana Bafana coach Clive Barker, rose to prominence when he guided Tuks to the Premier Soccer League in 2012, where they've been playing since.
