Bongani Zungu

South Africa’s star midfielder Bongani Zungu has probably ended all good terms with his Ligue 2 club Amiens.

The Johannesburg-born midfielder has said he is determined to leave the French club after his manager Philippe Hinschberger claimed Zungu is overweight.

“I want to get out of Amiens, and right now I have a coach telling the media I am overweight,” the former Mamelodi Sundowns number six said to Soccer Laduma.

“I don’t understand what he wants from me, maybe he is trying to save his job by saying bad things about me.”

The 29-year-old added to say he directly confronted Hinschberger about the comments about his weight.

“I have asked him not to disrespect me. I want to play football and help, I think I am capable of that. But the coach is acting up, that’s fine and he’s apologised because I confronted him. It was disrespectful. In January I am going to be free, whatever happens.

“My family knows that I have no plans to stay here. I don’t want to be here – my time here is finished. This is a fact, and I am being honest. I can make my own decisions, it’s not up to people in the boardroom,” Zungu concluded.

Meanwhile, it remains to be seen if Zungu will remain in Europe or return to Mzansi? Futaa will keep a close eye on the future of the man known as “Ben 10.”
