Why Zungu Joined Sundowns Instead Of Chiefs, The Key Factor Behind The Transfer Revealed

Bongani Zungu had a lot of options before he decided to go back to Mamelodi Sundowns, and now we know the main reason why. 

After leaving Sundowns in 2016, the 29-year-old spent the last six years improving his skills in other countries. 

First with Vitoria Guimaraes in Portugal and then with Amiens in France. In between, he spent time on loan with Rangers, one of the best teams in Scotland. 

Since June, when he became a free agent, the future of the star from Duduza was up in the air. But Sundowns surprised the football world when they announced his signing in front of a packed Loftus Versfeld Stadium just minutes before beating Kaizer Chiefs 4-0. 

"Well, you're back in Bongani Zungu now. I want to say a big thank you to the club, Flemming, the President, the Chairman, and the rest of the management team for all of the hard work they did behind the scenes. Mokwena told the media after the game, "It was a very complicated deal that took a long time and had a lot of problems." 

The reason Mokwena came back to the club was because of his close friendship with Zungu, which went beyond a professional relationship into a personal one. The coach admitted that other clubs had made better offers to sign the midfielder. 

"I also want to thank Bongani for his trust and patience. He had other job offers, but he chose to work for us and was very patient. The offers were even better than what we had made, but it helps when coaches and players get along well. This makes players want to work with the coaches and be a part of the team. "I want to thank Bongani's mother and family for helping him choose us over the other options he had," Mokwena said.
