Zungu clarifies Europe exit and slams failure suggestions

Bongani Zungu says he has no regrets over his move from Europe to Mamelodi Sundowns, but is delighted after linking up with his former teammates. The 30 year old defensive midfielder spent seven years with Vitoria Guimaràes SC in Portugal, Amiens SC in France and Rangers in Scotland, before sealing a switch to Sundowns in August this year.

 Despite a bright start at Amines SC, he eventually struggled to maintain his place in the starting X1, and was subsequently loaned to Rangers. When asked if he regrets his move from Europe, Zungu told members of the media:” Nothing went wrong.

I made a decision with my family to come back home because of personal reasons. I don’t have regrets about my career.” “People can say whatever they want. I am happy because I came from nothing and I worked hard to play in Europe.” He further indicated that he will use the FIFA world cup break to regain his fitness ahead of the second league and caf champions league next year.  

With Sundowns having bolstered their squad at the start of the season, Zungu has been forced to wait patiently for his chance to impress, having appeared for less than 270 minutes.  Zungu has been limited to just three brief substitute appearance off the bench.

With that said, Zungu has been tipped by many to come into the starting line. However, Rhulani Mokwena and his technical team thought otherwise and opted to stay loyal to Andile Jali alongside Mkulise.

The defending champions and premier league log leaders Sundowns will face a mammoth task when the premier league returns with an encounter against Orlando Pirates at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria on December 31.
