A former Bidvest Wits and Chippa United defender has opened up about his disappointment after his failed move to Mamelodi Sundowns.
In an exclusive interview in edition 1216 of Soccer Laduma, Pentjie Zulu confirmed that he had an opportunity to join Sundowns along with his ex-Black Leopards teammate Khuliso Mudau who made the move to Chloorkop last year.
Zulu, 30, says former Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane’s move to Egyptian giants Al Ahly affected his proposed move.
Speaking to the Siya crew, the QwaQwa-born left-back says it still hurts him that he didn’t join the Brazilians.
“It hurts because I would have loved to go and challenge myself at a big club like Sundowns. Sundowns is a big club that is always at the top of the log and challenging for league titles and other trophies. It was going to be a big achievement for me in my career and in life. As footballers, we all wish to play for teams that are competitive and challenging for trophies,” said Zulu.
Zulu has found a new home at Sekhukhune United in the GladAfrica Championship, this after he was shockingly released from Leopards after failed contract negotiations with the Limpopo outfit.
