‘Kaizer Chiefs don’t have a thinker like Zungu’ Pirates legend

Orlando Pirates legend Benedict ‘Tso’ Vilakazi believes Bongani Zungu could be a perfect fit for Kaizer Chiefs.

The 31-year-old dropped a bombshell when he announced he was leaving Masandawana after just two years. Zungu rejoined Sundowns on a free transfer from the French second-tier club Amiens in August 2022. The midfielder, affectionately known as ‘Ben 10’ is now a free agent but has been linked with an overseas move.

Vilakazi said Zungu could be an asset to the struggling Kaizer Chiefs.

“I got disturbed a little on what pushed him to that point or maybe he’s going to go to the Arabs in Saudi Arabia,” he told iDiski Times.

“That’s what came to my mind because I don’t think there’s really any team in South Africa that can convince him to leave Sundowns.

“Zungu, for me, if he can go to (Kaizer) Chiefs, it will remind me of the likes of Donald ‘Ace’ Khuse in that midfield, Patrick Mbuthu, Thabo Mooki, you know ball players.

“If you look at midfielders that Chiefs have now, they don’t have a ball player. They don’t have a thinker. Zungu is a thinker, he’s good at marshalling the midfield, he’s not a hard tackler but he’s very smart to anticipate a move,” he concluded.

Vilakazi wants Zungu to join Kaizer Chiefs next season

Although Tso wants Zungu to join Amakhosi, former Mamelodi Sundowns star Sello Mhlangu has urged the midfielder not to join the Soweto giants.

“His next move after Sundowns should be going back to Europe. Him moving to Europe will also benefit Bafana Bafana,” added the former Masandawana star.

“I don’t think he will move to the likes of Chiefs in terms of financial implications. At his age, he is not going to accept anything less than what he is currently paid,” he told KickOff.

Ben 10 could move back overseas, according to reports

With Nasreddine Nabi taking over at Kaizer Chiefs next week, perhaps Zungu might be tempted to join the Glamour Boys. At 31, Ben 10 still has more in the tank and could bring life into the Amakhosi midfield.
