- SA sports publications report that the soccer star has only had limited time on the field to showcase his true potential, something that's holding him back
South Africa's Bongani Zungu seems to be having a tough time securing himself a spot on Scotland's Rangers football team. The young midfielder has had only limited time to prove himself worthy as a permanent player.
Bongani's woes seem to be a result of the fact that he has only been allowed to showcase his skills as a talented footballer for a limited time. According to reports, the young man has been receiving the short end of the football stick, only showing up as a late substitute during his last couple of games.
Bongani, who started playing for the Rangers on a loan term basis, has shown up to defend the team on the field as a substitute for the last three games, which saw him playing for less than 15 minutes each time.
It seems however that the team's coach Steven Gerrard has faith in Zungu. KickOff reported that Gerrard had said Zungu is getting better and better. Speaking after a November game, the coach spoke warmly about the footballer, saying that he had kept the team balanced.
In other Briefly.co.za sports news, South African Orlando Pirates player Zakhele Lepasa shared a photo of himself recovering from a recent injury. The young player has been sitting out of the game after having received the injury that left him with a broken leg.
There seems to be some light at the end of the tunnel however as it seems he is in higher spirits and recovering. Taking to Twitter, the young man shared a photograph of himself using crutches to help stand. He captioned the picture of himself:
"Slowly getting there."
Soon his fans and followers were in the comment section, sharing well wishes and messages of support with the Orlando Pirates player.
