Newly signed Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila midfielder Masibusane Zongo has expressed his gratitude after being given yet another chance to play professional football.
Zongo has penned a 6-month deal with the GladAfrica Championship side. The 29-year-old was written off by many following his mischiefs in the past with different clubs.
Speaking exclusively to FARPost.co.za from TTM’s training rounds in Louis Trichardt yesterday, Zongo says his bad behaviour is the thing of the past.
“It has been a great pleasure and all thanks must be given to the President (Masala Mulaudzi) who put his team on the line because everyone has written me off but he took a chance to bring me here so with that I am very thankful and I will make sure I don’t disappoint hi,” Zongo said.
“I have grown a lot because at my age I know what to do and what not to do because I am sure everyone knows the obstacles that I have faced in my life but those are just challenges that you have to learn from and learn as a person because I am not growing young anymore. I am getting old and there will be a time whereby I hang my boots so for me coming back is for me to get to a bigger level,” he continued.
“I have recovered from all these problems. Most of the people just read things but don’t actually know what happens behind the scenes. To be honest with you know how the media exaggerate you know. But for me it has always been about disagreements that I had with management of certain teams that led me to act the way I used to.”
Zongo is unlikely to make his debut during the League match against Royal Eagles at Thohoyandou Stadium on Saturday, as he’s still settling in.
