The Orlando Pirates interviewed its newest signing, Nkanyiso Zungu, this week. The 24-year-old said he was excited to join the Bucs, however, the move left his family divided.
According to Zungu, he grew up in a home that supports the Pirates' rivals, the Kaizer Chiefs. However, Briefly.co.za learned that when he was old enough to decide for himself, Zungu chose the Bucs as his team.
"I come from a family of staunch Kaizer Chiefs supporters but as soon as I was old enough to make my own decisions, I went against the grain and chose the black and white of Pirates. I think I was mainly attracted to their style of play," he said.
On the 29th, the Bucs are set to take on the Amakhosi side and Zungu believes his family will support him on that day.

"I was destined to be here, playing for the team that I support so if it means I must break their hearts then so be it. But I have a strong feeling that the family home will change to black and white for that day."
