Bongani Zungu Education And Career
Zungu started playing serious football after joining Dynamos in the National First Division. While at Dynamos, he had some really nice games which made him noticed by Coach Steve Barker of AmaTuks. “He gave me a call in 2013, and that is how I joined AmaTuks and I am heavily indebted to Steve Barker for believing in me when I was very young” he said.
When Bongani joined AmaTuks, they were running through their 1st season in the PSL, and it even amazed Zungu that at that stage, Steve still believed in him. “I grabbed the chance with both hands,” he said
Being an excellent midfielder, Bongani’s game display at AmaTuks grabbed the attention of other coaches on the hunt, and soon after, he joined the Mamelodi Sundowns. At that time, the club had built a reputation as a career suicide club. This gave the young midfielder a hard time to decide because anyone who really cares about the future of their career would think twice before taking such an offer. He was quite uncertain until coach Pitso visited him at his home in Duduza with a mission of convincing him to join the Sundowns club.
Against most people’s advice, he took up the offer because he realized that coach Pitso was in a terrible need for quality players who could help him take the club to new heights. He also noticed Pitso’s strong mentality and just how seriously he longed for changes to happen at the club. In the company of great players like Khama Billiat, Bongani’s talent as a midfielder played out way better than he had expected, and important changes started to happen at the Mamelodi Sundowns.
“I had really longed to be part of the team that would end the trophy hoodoo, and I am glad that I helped to turn the situation around,” he said. The milestone registered at Sundowns put Zungu’s career in a kind of cruise mode, and more opportunities started signing. From there, he joined Vitória Guimarães SC B in Portugal. “When this opportunity came, I was 24years, and I thought, oops am I not too old for Europe,” he said
As fate would have it when the Vitória Guimarães SC B opportunity came up, he had an injury, but his skills had impressed them beyond any excuse. Though he did not play for half of the season, he gave his best after recovery. “I would give my best because I had always wanted to play in Europe”, he recalled.
In 2017, Zungu got another break and moved over to Ligue1 side Amiens SC in France. Though this move annoyed the Guimarães fans, he still found it wise to go because the French league looked more challenging and profitable. He noted that as a player, and it made sense to go and compete with the best in the world.” I am very encouraged by the support by the fans in France because they are always by our side whether we lose or win”, he said.
Zungu signed for Scottish club Rangers on loan from Amiens in October 2020. Rangers secured an option to sign him permanently for a £2.7 million transfer fee. In February 2021 he was one of five Rangers players fined by Scottish police “for attending an illegal gathering of 10 people in a flat” in breach of lockdown rules during the COVID-19 pandemic in the United Kingdom.
