SuperSport United’s veteran striker, Sibusiso Zuma, could hang up his boots at the end of the season.
The 38-year-old recently signed a one-year deal with Matsatsantsa, following a string of fine performances for them last season. However, in this current campaign, he has been hampered by injuries.
The former Bafana Bafana man is now back to full fitness once again, and vying for a place in Cavin Johnson’s starting XI at SuperSport.

Although, at 38, Zuma will no doubt be thinking carefully about what lies ahead for him, having significantly dropped down the pecking order in Johnson’s strike force.
Zuma, a consummate professional, is highly thought of by coaches and players alike in Mzansi, and recently had a statue of himself unveiled in Denmark as his former club, FC Copenhagen, rewarded him for his many fine displays in their colours.
Many would like to see the striker go into coaching when he does finally hang up his boots, although it remains up to the player to decide exactly when that time will be.
Zuma’s current deal with SuperSport will expire at the end of this season, and it remains to be seen whether Matsatsantsa will offer him a new deal that would see him past his 40th birthday.
