Zungu Breaks Silence On His Struggles At Pirates
Outgoing Orlando Pirates midfielder Nkanyiso Zungu has revealed the reasons behind his struggles during his time with the Buccaneers.
Pirates announced last month that Zungu will spend the 2022/23 season with the newly-promoted KwaZulu-Natal-based outfit, in hopes to revive his career.
The 26-year-old made just one domestic appearance for Pirates last season and was left out of the squad completely for most of the campaign.
“Sometimes things happen, you get a lot of frustration and end up having depression, which makes you do things and I don’t want to talk about it, for now, it is personal but now I’m okay and want to play football,” Zungu told the media.
“Besides not playing football, there were a lot of things that were happening in my life personally which caused the depression but I don’t want to talk about it. ”
“What I’ve learned at Orlando Pirates, as a player you have to work hard, be disciplined, always understand your role, always be professional, respect yourself and others around you, always playing for the badge, not for yourself.”
