Extension Gunners have beaten both Township Rollers and Mochudi Centre Chiefs to the signature of Zongo

South African midfielder Masibusane Zongo has been given yet another chance to revive his football career. 

The former SuperSport United and Royal Eagles winger signed a two-year deal with Botswana Premier League side Extension Gunners.

The dribbling wizard was last on the books of National First Division (NFD) side Royal Eagles, who gave him multiple chances despite going AWOL from time to time as this has been the case most of his football career.

The 28-year-old's off-the-field behaviour has let him and those who believe in him down countless times.

In 2017 Zongo was arrested after he was charged for allegedly sexually assaulting a 19-year-old woman back in February 2013 in Cape Town.

However, he was released not so long ago and vowed to resurrect his ailing football career. 

After returning to Eagles, they finally had enough of Zongo’s bad-boy behaviour as they released him after making just four appearances during the 2017/18 season. 

Gunners chairman Tariq Babitseng confirmed that they had signed the 28-year-old star and that they were only waiting for his work permit before playing him.

“Yes, Zongo is at the hotel. We are working on his work permit. He will be with us for two seasons,” said Babitseng.

Zongo is well known for his stylish brand of football, and the Gunners chairman will be hoping to get the best out of him in the next two seasons.  

The player will also be looking to make this opportunity count as it is believed that the skilful player is one his favourite players.

With his skill and flair, Zongo is the type of player that can entertain and attract crowd to match venues. 

Reports suggest that Botswana giants Township Rollers and Mochudi Centre Chiefs were also interested in signing him.
