Sibusiso Zuma wants to finish his career on a high with SuperSport because he is not sure what will happen next seasonNot everyone is blessed with the ability to play like an 18 year old whilst they are over 35 years of age but SuperSport United striker Sibusiso Zuma who is 37, is still determined to keep in form when the season resumes.
Zuma told Goal.com that so long as he is still physically fit, he will continue offering his services on the field and he does not even think about hanging his boots yet.
“So far all is good. I am still happy with my performances and if the time comes for me to hang my boots I will do so. For now I am just taking every game and every day as it comes,” said Zuma.
The sensational striker is still full of energy after holding 67 caps for Bafana after having had the opportunity to represent the country in the 2002 Fifa World Cup and also captain the side during the 2006 Africa Cup of Nations.
His experience has benefited his club SuperSport, which is where he would love to continue.
The striker said his goal for this year will be to possibly win some silverwear for United.
“I have been working very hard, to stay fit. As we speak I am coming from training because that is one of the ways I am able to be competent at my age. It would be great to finish this season on a high note because I don’t know what will happen after that.
“I am planning to help the team win some trophies, but importantly enjoy my game and continue working hard,” he said.
Another player who played with Zuma at club level and for the national team, who is still running strong is Siyabonga Nomvete. Though, Nomvete who is currently playing for Moroka Swallows is two years younger (35 years) than Zuma, but he is one of the players that have had a great impact on the Birds team.
Zuma said his secret has been discipline.
“It takes discipline and training. My love for football is something else, and so long as my club appreciates my contribution, I will continue to deliver,” he said.
