Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Rulani Mokwena has revealed that he’s not happy with the progress of midfielder Bongani Zungu, though he remains optimistic he will be back to his best soon.
“As incredible a human being as Zungu [is], are we happy with his progress? He knows I’m not happy and I can speak in a personal capacity. He knows that he can do more,” Mokwena told the media.
“I’m not afraid to say it here because I’ve said it to him. But we continue to work and the physical trainer tries to assist him. It is not easy if you look at where Bongani has been for the last two seasons. It has been very difficult for him,”
“And the subject of weight loss is the subject of conditioning. So, it is very difficult to put a time frame concerning that to lose the number of kilos that he has lost,”
“It is a reflection of the good work both he and the conditioning team have done, but he remains committed to the process and we will see more from Bongs and he will continue to work hard,”
“He is a top professional that’s what got him to Europe. It is not a worry or concern because I think very soon, he will be in a good condition,”
