Q&A with Lunga Zondi

AmaZulu midfielder Lunga Zondi talks about making the step up to the elite league, the positive vibe within the squad and his long term goals.

AmaZuluFC.net: You’re one of a number of players who joined AmaZulu from Thanda Royal Zulu at the start of the season; what has the experience been like so far?

Lunga Zondi: I was very happy when I signed for AmaZulu because it had been my dream for a long time to play in the Absa Premiership. I had played in the National First Division for four seasons and I felt it was time to go to the next level.

AmaZuluFC.net: What are some of the challenges you’ve encountered since joining the team and how do you overcome them?

LZ: As a new player the first challenge is always settling into the team and a new style of play. From there it’s a matter of proving to the coach that you are ready to play even though there are many talented players in the team. The great thing is that there is a lot of unity in the team and I received a lot of support from the coaches and my teammates.

AmaZuluFC.net: How do you feel about being included in the starting lineup for the past two games against Polokwane City and Bloemfontein Celtic?

LZ: I’m really happy about that because I’ve been working hard at training. I won’t stop working now because there are many aspects of my game that still need to improve, including my first touch, getting into goalscoring areas and scoring goals.

AmaZuluFC.net: The team has had mixed results so far this season – what will it take to remain in the top half of the table?

LZ: We started the season well and sort of lost our way after some good results but I believe we are on our way back to form now. We’re always open to criticism and as a team we’ve noticed our mistakes and we have to learn from them. We want to come back from the international break with a bang and play as we did at the start of the season so we can win games again.

AmaZuluFC.net: What can we expect from you throughout the season – have you set yourself any targets?

LZ: I don’t have specific targets and numbers but I’d like to play regularly and contribute a lot for the team. We have a good chance to achieve something big if we work as a team and that’s the most important thing to me right now.

    I think our team is making mistakes now for letting a player like Letladi to go ,this guy is good even Mshengu was also good but we let them to go .The management and the technical team will have to revisit this idea of letting good players to go ,most of all they are South African based players who can be elligable to be in the national team .well singazisoli ekugcineni siyayithanda i team yethu .

    I couldn’t agree more Philani, We are constantly letting good players go yet management always give our coaches mandates to finish in the top 4 which does not make sense, We first let Majoro go and we struggled to find his replacement even today we are still struggling, then it was Thami Sangweni and we managed to find Madondo but he can’t carry the team alone hence we always struggle, bringing Madubanya I thought was an excellent buy just what we needed He and Madondo would be our Manyisa and Jali, but now as usual there is talk that he be leaving which I don’t understand the logic behind it. So to the Management when we lose more and more games don’t blame Rosslee blame your Management style of which we are sick and tired of we demand that this team keeps its best players that includes Madubanya we are not a small team.
