The return to action of the former Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder is also highly anticipated in France
After spending many months on the sidelines with a knee injury, Bafana Bafana player Bongani Zungu is nearing his return.
We watched a training video of Zungu on Tuesday, and now you can listen to a radio broadcast from France Bleu Picardie.
They are looking forward to seeing Zungu turn out for Ligue 1 club Amiens again. He's been out for three months so far and South Africa's national team coach Stuart Baxter will hope that his midfielder will be available for Bafana's crunch game away to Libya in March.
This interview is in French but you can also hear Zungu speak in English between the news. It's very rare to hear a football news bulletin hail a South African player in Ligue 1 on French radio.
