Mkhwanazi: Zungu Made Right Move

Buhle Mkhwanazi says he is impressed with the progress shown by his former teammate Bongani Zungu since he joined Mamelodi Sundowns.

The flamboyant Zungu has adjusted well to life at the Brazilians, starting in all the games so far, while also looking to establish himself in the Bafana Bafana squad. He was part of the squad that faced Morocco on Friday and Gordon Igesund sees him as a valuable member of the team ahead of the 2015 Afcon and 2018 World Cup.

Mkhwanazi, himself a former Sundowns player and a teammate of Zungu’s at the University of Pretoria last season, says Zungu joined the club at the right time.

“The main thing with him is that he is working hard," said Zungu.

"Sometimes you mustn’t move to a big team for the sake of it, but to get game time.

"He’s getting a chance to play now. Sundowns signed a lot of young players and they’re using those young players.

"Whenever you move, you need to check the performance of the player you’re going to compete with.

"If you check Sundowns’ midfield, they’ve got guys like Surprise Moriri and Esrom Nyandoro, who are ageing.

"He’s working hard, he’s doing well, but it was the right time to move and he made the right move.

"He wanted to join Sundowns and everything is going well for him, even at national level, and I’m happy for him."
