It’s a common principle in football that talented footballers are not necessarily a hard working bunch.
The levels of ability in footballers are different. When a player is not blessed with natural ability he makes up for it with sheer hard work.
On the flip side, players who have been bestowed with natural talent and ability, don’t need to work as hard.Mamelodi Sundowns attacking midfielder Bongani Zungu is one such player.
Zungu possesses that all so rare deft touch. Blessed with a football brain and the talent to translate his thoughts into action on the football park, Zungu is able to play an entire 90 minutes of football without figuratively breaking a sweat.
But does this mean that Zungu can fall into the trap of believing that he is better than he actually is? Definitely!
Hard work pushes a player to strive and become better, and Zungu will need to make sure that if he is to become a player, playing at his maximum capacity will have to see him graft a little more to supplement his talents
