Antipas will replace Steve Barker who was fired by Usuthu after failing to get the team into the Absa Premiership
“We have concluded the paperwork with Mr Joey Antipas and we’re very pleased for the appointment. He’s someone that will definitely bring the wit and experience that we need to rise above this season’s underachievement, and also ensure we are a strong force in challenging for promotion next season,” said AmaZulu general manager, Lunga Sokhela.
Sokhela added that Antipas will be coming in from time to time to observe things at the Usuthu camp under interim coach Delron Buckley until the end of the season.
The 57-year-old coach will begin his work on July 1.
Antipas has won two Zimbabwean championships with Motor Action (2010) and Chicken Inn last season.
He holds a Caf B coaching license and has spent time at Germany’s Borussia Dortmund and Brondby in Denmark as part of his studies in 2012 and 2013.
