DURBAN – AmaZulu have suspended defender Carlington Nyadombo (pictured) indefinitely.
The 29-year-old is at the centre of a storm, with certain club supporters accusing him of using muti to ensure the team loses.
AmaZulu have supposedly had to increase security at training to keep upset fans at bay, while the Zimbabwean international has missed the last two matches since the news broke.
Steve Barker confirmed the news of Nyadombo’s suspension today, saying: “The decision that has been taken by the club is that we have suspended Carlington Nyadombo indefinitely. That’s all I can at this stage.”
Nyadombo’s agent, Mike Mabaab of ProSport International, yesterday hit out at the rumours surrounding his client.
And on Tuesday, they lost 0-1 to all-conquering Mamelodi Sundowns.
“I’m saddened by how the media has taken it and made it like this boy is doing things against the club, which is absolutely nonsense,” he told KickOff.com.
“We are talking about somebody who’s got integrity and someone who has captained Zimbabwe and has been at AmaZulu for so many years.
“Unless someone can come to the fore and give proof of what has been said then I must wonder where this comes from.”
AmaZulu are languishing at the foot of the Abs Premier Soccer League standings, having lost all four their matches since the turn of the year. This Sunday they go to high-flying SuperSport United.
