Bongani Zungu, After Leaving Mamelodi Sundowns, Sparks Controversy by Posing in Orlando Pirates Jersey in South Africa

In a surprising twist, Mamelodi Sundowns star Bongani Zungu was recently seen sporting an Orlando Pirates jersey, setting the South African football community abuzz.

Bongani Zungu shocked fans and pundits alike when he announced his departure from Sundowns on social media.

This move was unexpected, considering his significant role in the team.

Just two seasons ago, Zungu rejoined Sundowns after leaving French club Amiens SC. Before his return to Sundowns, there were rumors of him joining Kaizer Chiefs, with reports of secret meetings with Bobby Motaung.

However, nothing materialized from those speculations, and Zungu found his way back to Masandawana.

A Stint Marked by Challenges

Zungu’s second stint at Sundowns was marked by challenges.

Upon his return, he had to undergo an extensive fitness regime before making his debut.

This delay seemed to affect his performance, as he struggled to become a regular in the midfield.

Despite being a key player in the season run-in, his performances were inconsistent.

He often played a hybrid role between midfield and center-back, which didn’t quite suit him.

Ultimately, these struggles led to his departure from the club.

The Final Match in Sundowns Colors

Zungu’s last match for Sundowns was memorable but not for the best reasons.

He played in the Nedbank Cup final against Orlando Pirates, a game that ended in disappointment for Sundowns.

Zungu was involved in a crucial moment where he was outplayed by Relebohile Mofokeng, leading to Pirates’ 2-1 comeback victory.

This match marked the end of Zungu’s time with Sundowns.

A Pirates Fan at Heart?

As Zungu searches for his next club, an old photo of him wearing an Orlando Pirates jersey has surfaced.

The picture shows a young Zungu at a stadium, likely supporting Pirates, hinting at his boyhood allegiance to the team.

This revelation raises questions among Pirates fans: Would they welcome Zungu to their club?

What’s Next for Zungu?

With his departure from Sundowns, the football community is eager to see where Bongani Zungu will head next.

His past association with Pirates, as shown in the photo, adds an interesting twist to his career journey.

Only time will tell if he will don the Pirates jersey once again, this time as a player.
