Siyabonga Zulu, who was on the books of the Brazilians for just one season after joining from Platinum Stars in 2018, is set to undergo an assessment with Paneng FC in Malaysia in the new season.

Zulu is looking to resurrect his once promising career that has been blighted by off-field issues and reports of ill-discpline which ultimately led to his sacking at the Chloorkop outfit by then-coach Pitso Mosimane.

News of the assessment was confirmed by the player’s representative Gerald Baloyi of Vodia Player’s Management, who shared his excitement over the opportunity for the 27-year-old to mend his career.

“Paneng FC sent an invitation for Siyabonga to come for assessment that side in Malaysia. He is someone who deserves a second chance to play football again,” Baloyi told the Siya crew.

Zulu spent some time with Black Leopards in November last year but was released after playing only two matches for Lidoda Duvha. He only spent some time training with GladAfrica outfit Cape Town City.

The Soweto-born fullback is currently on the books of ambitious ABC Motsepe side Gomora FC, who he joined in February this year, following some time in football obscurity.
