Bafana Bafana and FC København legend Sibusiso Zuma set to move into coaching

accreditation

Zuma hung up his boots back in 2015 after two decades of success that earned him legendary status in both South Africa and Denmark due to his unique talents.

After starring with African Wanderers and Orlando Pirates between 1995 and 2000 he earned a move to Europe with F.C. Copenhagen where his five-year stint left such an impression that a statue was erected in his honour outside of the club.

Zuma has often expressed that he was not planning on returning to professional football but life under lockdown during the Covid-19 pandemic has seemingly rearranged his future ambitions.

"Definitely [I'm] coming back to football, the last time we spoke I wasn't sure. I'm coming back, I'm going to coach," Zuma confirmed to snl24.com/kickoff before revealing what's held up his decision.

"I'm almost done with my legacy project so as soon as that's done I'll begin coaching. I hope I can finish up quickly and start working.

"I'm going for UEFA Pro License as my goal, I'll start in youth coaching. I will do this [through the DFB] in Germany."

Zuma went on to play in the Bundesliga for Arminia Bielefeld, before stints with Mamelodi Sundowns, Nordsjælland, Vasco da Gama and Matsantsansa.

He also scored 13 goals in 66 caps for the senior South Africa national team and captained the nation at the 2006 Africa Cup of Nations.
