Zungu wants to leave French club Amiens


Bafana Bafana international Bongani Zungu has admitted that he wants to leave Ligue 1 side Amiens and feels that he is ready for a new challenge, preferably in Spain – La Liga or the English Premier League (EPL) to play for a “big team”.

Amiens was relegated to Ligue 2 after the Ligue de Football Professional (LFP) confirmed that the French football season was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic and Zungu said that he did his best to help his side avoid the axe.

However, the French club won’t go down without a fight as they are considering legal action to fight their “unjust” relegation from Ligue 1 without the season’s full conclusion with 10 rounds of matches left in the 2019/20 season.

“I think the club understands and they know that I’m looking to spread my wings, to get a new challenge, and to be honest I’m ready for that,” Zungu told Get French Football News.

“But you don’t know what the future holds. I love the club; the president is amazing, and the fans… But personally I would like to move on with my career, and hopefully it happens,” added Zungu, who joined Amiens back in 2017 from Portuguese side Vitória Guimarães SC, putting in impressive performances against some of the best teams and players in the French top division league

The former Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder says football is a short career and he believes that he is ready to play against the big boys in Spain or England.

“I would love to play in Spain, in La Liga. I think the league is nice, the teams play football, and yeah, I would like to hopefully get a club in Spain.” – Zungu. 

The 27-year-old was close to signing for La Liga side Real Mallorca, in the January transfer window but the move failed to materialise as Amiens decided to retain his services.

“Honestly, I don’t know if you heard… I almost left in January. I would like to play in the Champions League or maybe one day play in England. I don’t know, you never know!

So, play in the Champions League, play in England or in La Liga in one of the big teams,” concluded the Bafana midfielder.
