Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Bongani Zungu faces question marks on his continued impact as the midfielder approaches the end of his first season since making a return to Chloorkop.
Zungu returned to the club on a free transfer at the beginning of the season after a six-year spell in Europe and is among the top earners at Sundowns.

Considering his profile and package the weight of expectations were naturally heavy but his numbers this term have not been inspiring.
Zungu has managed 12 appearances since re-joining the club at the beginning of the season.
The Bafana Bafana international has only played four games in the league totalling only 64 minutes as Sundowns move closer to sealing their sixth consecutive title.
His contribution has been better in the Nedbank Cup starting both games against Richards Bay and Marumo Gallants while he played 36 minutes in the futile MTN8 campaign.
In the Champions League, his numbers have been encouraging having been involved in all the first five games in the competition including his first 90-minute run against Seychelles part-timers La Passe.
Injury has since forced him to miss the last four games.
As it stands, the hope for Zungu is that he returns to make a better contribution than what he has already done.
Sundowns have seven league matches left plus could play another seven in the Champions League if they go all the way to the final while their Nedbank Cup commitments could stretch three games.
