Why Zungu Is Valued At Millions As A Number 6

Mamelodi Sundowns head coach, Pitso Mosimane has explained why he converts his players into different positions rather than in their natural element.

Mosimane secured the services of Lyle Lakay from Cape Town City in the July/August transfer window, where he took the player as a left-winger and converted him into a left-back, so as to suit the Sundowns system.

Speaking to the media after Sundowns’ 1-0 win against Golden Arrows, Mosimane revealed why he plays his players in different positions, adding that he converted Bongani Zungu to a number six and now he is valued at millions playing as a defensive midfielder in Europe.

“No, I want them there, because they score, out of two games, they score on each, so one out of two, you are a top goalscorer, that’s where I played Percy and Khama, they were playing there upfront with small bodies,” Mosimane said. 

“He (Toni Silva) will play on the side, I know he is a right winger, so was Khama, a right winger, I converted him, Percy was a left winger, I converted him, Bongani Zungu was a number 10 at Tuks, (but) number 6 (at Sundowns) look where he is, multi-million Euro player now as a number 6.”

“Thapelo, right wing, (but) right-back in my team, Madisha is a six, centre-back in my team, Lyle is a winger, (but) a left-back at Sundowns because they must fit in the model that we play in and sometimes they are not happy because, ‘I came as a winger and now you put me left-back’, no, I need the speed, you can’t have conservative defenders,” he added.
