A pamphlet with AmaZulu logo has apparently been doing rounds in the streets of Durban calling for young players to attend the trials.
But Usuthu spokesman, Nhlanhla Mkhathini, warned that the pamphlets are fake and AmaZulu have no trials going on now or in the near future.
“It’s not the first time that such a scam has happened, but it is the first time someone is demanding money for trials,” said Mkhathini on Tuesday.
He said when they have trials, they do them regionally and are well communicated through local media with an official from the team making the announcements.
“Trials are a process open for everyone to that fits the desired age group to participate and we usually organise them regionally so parents don’t incur unnecessary costs to bring their kids,” said Mkhathini.
He advised that people verify such events with the club through the office to ensure they don’t fall victims to such scams.
