SuperSport United set to lose another top striker in Sibusiso Zuma

Matsatsantsa have just lost the services of Kermit Erasmus to Pirates, and Sibusiso Zuma is likely to follow on his steps to another PSL club

SuperSport United could lose yet another striker in Sibusiso Zuma, just a few days after selling Kermit Erasmus to Orlando Pirates.

Matsatsantsa’s football director Stanley Matthews had previously confirmed that they have agreed [in principle] to extend Zuma’s contract with one year, although the former Pirates forward is yet to sign on the dotted lines.

However, according to a source within the United camp, Zuma is refusing to agree on a one-year deal offered by the club, because he feels that he can play for more than just a season.

“Zuma is not happy with a one-year contract the club has put on the table. He actually wants a two-year contract.

“However, the management is firm and it looks like the player might move to another club,” said our source.

Matthews revealed immediately after the SuperSport United-Manchester City game that they are planning to build a team around younger players who could be at the club for longer than Zuma.

Matthews also added that they won’t stand in Zuma’s way if he wants to move to a club that will give him a better offer.

The 38-year-old Zuma has been linked with various PSL teams including AmaZulu and AmaTuks, but it remains to be seen whether he will remain with the Tshwane side or not.

Elsewhere, Platinum Stars have reportedly signed former Orlando Pirates striker Takesure Chinyama although nothing has been confirmed.

Chinyama started training with Dikwena a few days ago after his proposed move to Bidvest Wits failed to materialize.
