Bongani Zungu Served A Heavy Blow By Scottish Football Association, Is This A Goodbye ?

Former Mamelodi Sundowns player, Bongani Zungu's bad behaviour finally caught up with him. The Scottish Football Association eventually gave a verdict on his misconduct; whereby he attended a party during strict lockdown measures due to Coronavirus

The Scottish football league have been very strict this season in comparison to other football leagues. Two Rangers players were handed seven-match bans earlier in the season so a heavy precedent was set.

Bongani Zungu has been handed a six-match ban (of which two are suspended) by the Scottish Football Association after he and four Rangers teammates breached Covid-19 regulations last month.

His absence in 4 matches may affect his chances of permanently being in the starting eleven. Zungu Is already battling to break into the lineups; and this might make matters even more worse for his career. 

The 28 year old from Duduza is in loan at Rangers; under the leadership of former Liverpool Captain, Steve Gerrard. Zungu joined Rangers from France side, Amiens Sporting Club with the hope of securing a permanent deal in Scotland. 

The on-loan Bafana Bafana international may have also deterred his chances of securing a permanent transfer to the Scottish club. Zungu is on-loan from French Ligue 2 side Amiens until the end of the 2020/21 season.

Meanwhile, Rangers have already secured the Scottish Premiership under former Liverpool great Steven Gerrard. It is the Glascow club’s 55 Scottish title. Zungu has only made 13 league appearances since his arrival and is eligible for a medal when the club lifts the crown.

Zungu along with Nathan Patterson, Calvin Bassey, Dapo Mebude and Brian Kinnear have all been charged after the players attended a house party which went against the national Covid-19 regulations. Zungu alongside his Rangers team-mates were all fined by the club and suspended for their indiscretion.

The five players attended a hearing on Thursday, 25 March to find out whether they face any further sanctions.
