Newly-signed Orlando Pirates midfielder Nkanyiso Zungu spoke for the first time since joining Bucs, explaining what the club’s supporters can expect from him.
Zungu became the Buccaneers’ January signing following his shock move from Stellenbosch FC, with coach Josef Zinnbauer confirming that the player got injured prior to their Nedbank Cup match against Bidvest Wits.
“Right now he is injured. So, we cannot work with him. But I am happy that we got a good player and it’s important that we bring him closer to the rest of the squad,” Zinnbauer said as quoted by SoccerLaduma.
Speaking for the first time since joining the Soweto giants, Zungu promised to repay the faith shown in him by the Soweto giants by being as efficient and consistent as he can.
“First and foremost, what I can say is that it’s an honour to have joined Orlando Pirates Football Club and from what the Chairman has said to me and how the team has welcomed me, they have laid down the foundation. It is now up to me to repay the Club for the faith that they have shown in me,” the 24-year-old was quoted by Pirates’ website.
“As for what the supporters can expect – I am a player who loves skill and flair and I feel this is the perfect club for me because it embraces players who play a brand of football that’s similar to mine. But I am also someone who hates losing so it won’t only be about skill and flair – I also like to grind in that midfield,” Zungu added.
