Charles Zulu admits PSL is much faster than football in Zambia


New Cape Town City player Charles Zulu says the sooner he adapts to PSL football the sooner he will start to contribute goals to his team.

The former Zanaco winger has signed a four-year- deal that will keep him at the Citizens until 2024.

After playing two matches in the DStv Premiership so far, the 24-year-old has shared his thoughts on the league.

"I think the league here is very fast, it's totally different from where I'm coming from," Zulu tells

"In Zambia the league is very slow, but here in South Africa it's very fast. The other difference I think I can say is facilities. Here in South Africa they've got good facilities, in Zambia we don't have facilities.

"I think where I'm coming from I even told myself that where I am going I have to score goals and assist goals. And that's my target for this season."

Zulu says he he hopes to hit form faster than his Zambian compatriots Augustine Mulenga, Justin Shonga and Lazarous Kambole, who came to South Africa with big reputations but have so far failed to live up to expectations.

"[Chuckling] Well I think it's just a matter of time. Like you see when Justin Shonga came to South Africa, even Augustine Mulenga they were scoring and assisting goals. So it's a matter of time, it will come," he says.

"As for me I always pray to God that I catch up very fast with the team. I have to start scoring goals very fast and assist goals. I don't want to take long. Because when I take long, my confidence will go down. But if I start scoring goals now, my confidence will go up.

"My coach knows where to put me, he knows my strength, he knows what I can do on the pitch. For example I'm good on the wing, if you put me there on the wing and you tell me what to do. If you do something he doesn't like, he will tell you."

Zulu says he cannot wait to play in front of the South African football fans once spectators are allowed into stadiums again.

"Ya that's what I want most," he adds. "I can't wait for that because the supporters give morale when you are playing.

"Ya I think for now everything is fine, I can't complain, I have found a good friendship in the team. When you are new it's not easy for you to adapt very fast."
