AmaZulu Decides Against Offering Contract to Former Orlando Pirates Midfielder Nkanyiso Zungu

Reports indicate that AmaZulu FC has opted not to offer a contract to Nkanyiso Zungu, the former Orlando Pirates midfielder, following weeks of training with the club.

Zungu’s training stint with AmaZulu has recently concluded, and it has been made clear that he will not be signed during this transfer window.

Zungu’s Troubled History

Nkanyiso Zungu has faced a challenging period in his football career. He has been without a club since his departure from Orlando Pirates in July.

His time with Pirates included a loan spell that was cut short by Richards Bay FC during the season.

In March 2022, Zungu was suspended by Pirates after being arrested and charged with alleged domestic violence against his partner.

Subsequently, the charges were dropped, and Pirates lifted his suspension, sending him on a loan agreement to Richards Bay FC.

Recent Training and Trial Period

After parting ways with Pirates, Zungu was reported to have been training with Royal AM.

However, Steve Barker, the coach of Stellenbosch FC, ruled out a potential return for Zungu to his former club.

The recent development sees Zungu’s training with AmaZulu coming to an end.


AmaZulu FC’s decision not to offer Nkanyiso Zungu a contract comes after the troubled midfielder trained with the club for several weeks.

Zungu’s recent history has been marked by controversy, including his suspension at Orlando Pirates and allegations of domestic violence.

Although the charges were dropped, his football journey has faced disruptions.

Zungu’s departure from Pirates, his training with other clubs, and the ultimate decision by AmaZulu not to sign him signify the challenges he currently faces in his career.

The rejection raises questions about his future in professional football and whether he can rebuild his career and reputation after a turbulent period.

It remains to be seen what the next steps will be for Nkanyiso Zungu as he seeks to find stability in his football career.
