Bongani Zungu has struck back at Amiens boss Philippe Hinschberger's comments that he is overweight, addressing exclusively to Soccer Laduma and making it obvious that he wants to quit the French club!
My family is aware that I have no intention of remaining in this town. I don't want to remain here; my stay has come to an end. This is a fact, and I'm telling it like it is. "I don't have to listen to individuals in the boardroom; I can make my own judgments," Zungu remarked.
The Bafana Bafana star has not appeared in an official match since April, when he was on loan at Rangers, when a permanent deal fell through because the Scottish Premier League champions and Amiens couldn't agree on a transfer fee.
After being held up by visa issues in South Africa and then having to quarantine when reporting for club duty, Zungu returned to France in August.
"I'm putting in a lot of effort, training with the first team and doing everything I can to play." Despite the fact that we are in a crisis, second from bottom in Ligue 2, I do not choose who plays. We haven't won a game in a long time, and I want to help, but there are just too many things going on. "I've already made up my mind," the midfielder informed the Siya crew.
He's enraged that Hinschberger has made him the scapegoat.
"I want to leave Amiens, and my coach is currently telling the media that I am overweight." "I'm not sure what he wants from me; perhaps he's attempting to save his job by talking negative things about me," an enraged Zungu stated.
"I requested him not to be disrespectful to me. I want to play football and assist, and I believe I am capable of doing so. But the coach is behaving badly, which is OK, and he has apologized for confronting him. It was inconsiderate. Whatever happens, I'm going to be free in January.
While Zungu admires the Amiens hierarchy, he believes they are preventing him from progressing in his career.
"I can affirm that I had proposals, but it was the same situation as two or three years before." I adore the Amiens Sporting Director, but there are some things in the boardroom that are simply beyond my control. Many clubs wanted to get me out of here, but they all thought I was too pricey for a player with one year left on his contract. It's unfortunate that my future will be decided in a boardroom. "I have an agent who is trying everything he can to get me out of Amiens," Zungu added.
"As players, I feel we should be in command of our own paths, which is why I fired my prior agents." I'm not going to the president's office and making demands; I'll leave that to my agent. Even before I returned to France, he urged them to cancel my contract. They flatly refused. So they know I don't want to play in Ligue 2, but I'm not sure if the president is aware of this. Right now, my agent is probably on the phone with them! I want to leave; I don't want to remain here in December.
Zungu's contract expires on June 30, and he may sign a pre-contract with any club he wants from January 1, according to FIFA rules.
