Sundowns: Why Zungu Chose To Return To Chloorkop And When He Will Likely Make His Debut

Bongani Zungu says that two main things led him to come back to Mamelodi Sundowns

Six years after he left the club, the 29-year-old player is back where he started, where he made a name for himself and got a chance to play in Portugal, Scotland, and France. 

Now, Zungu has turned his back on Sundowns and gone back to Chloorkop. He has spoken out about why he decided to come back, citing the quality players in the Sundowns camp as one reason. 

“When I left Sundowns, I was already on a high. You know, I came here as a very young boy from AmaTuks and I learned a lot, the club changed my life, and we won trophies. To come back and see how the club has improved even more and gotten even more quality players was also a big factor in my decision to come back here, and I am really excited about it," he told Sundowns TV. 

Sundowns have been desperate to win the CAF Champions League since they last won a continental title in 2016, right after Zungu left the club. This is another important factor for Zungu. 

"Before I signed here, I thought about what I could bring and what I wanted to do, and that helped me decide to come back. I would really love to go and compete for the Champions League, and the club is also among the best in Africa competing to win the trophy, not just to be in the group stages but to get as far as getting another star, [FIFA] Club World Cup, so that's just very good," he said. 

Zungu could make his second debut for the club this weekend against Sekhukhune United. The midfielder hasn't played since the end of June, so it's not clear how well he's doing.
