Zungu On His Bafana Return And How He’s Improved In Europe

Bongani Zungu thinks that he’s improved during his time in Europe and is happy to be back in the Bafana Bafana setup under Stuart Baxter.
 
 
The 24-year-old has missed out on Bafana squads recently as he recovered from a long-term shin injury, however, is now back in the mix as Baxter prepares for the first game of his tenure against Nigeria.
 
Zungu, who has been flying for Vitoria de Guimaraes, has praised the Englishman and said that he’s ready to ‘kill it’ if he is given the chance to impress in Uyo over the weekend.
 
He told the media today, “I’m happy to be back. It’s been a while. Everyone knows I’ve been struggling with injury and it’s good to be back. The preparations are going well. The coach is a very good coach. The sessions are nice and we’re looking forward to Nigeria.
 
 “If I get a chance I’ll make sure I grab it with both hands. It’s very important for the nation that we have good competition. We also have very good midfielders who play locally.
 
“It’s exciting. I’m looking forward to taking my experience from Portugal and bringing it here. And also help the younger guys like Percy just to give them that motivation that maybe one day they can go and play abroad. If I get a chance‚ I’ll make sure I’ll kill it man.”
 
And what has he learnt in Europe during his time so far? “I believe I’m quicker with my decision-making when I have the ball,” he said. “Also it’s the environment in Europe… The stadiums are always full and you gain confidence. So the confidence is up.”
 
Bafana train twice on Tuesday and once on Wednesday morning before departing for Nigeria for their Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against the Super Eagles.
