Bidvest Wits' Gavin Hunt yet to decide on former Mamelodi Sundowns full-back Siyabonga Zulu

The former Dikwena and Masandawana defender is looking to impress and resurrect his career at the Students

Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt is remaining coy regarding the future of former Mamelodi Sundowns full-back Siyabonga Zulu.

Zulu was released for an alleged string of misdemeanours and misconduct which even saw him go AWOL at Chloorkop, leading to his sacking, and he subsequently found himself in football’s wilderness.

However, Zulu has since resurfaced in Braamfontein with him potentially looking to revive his career under the wing of Gavin Hunt.

Hunt though, who has a knack for offering players second chances, has suggested that he is yet to make a decision on the player's future.

"He's just asked to come and train,” Hunt told the media ahead of Wits’ Nedbank Cup clash with Chippa United this weekend.

“I'm not going to make a decision now about that. So, we will see," he concluded.

The wayward 25-year-old has managed just 90 minutes of Premier Soccer League (PSL) football since he joined Sundowns in January of 2018.

Meanwhile, Zulu was previously believed to be on the verge of signing with the Chilli Boys during the January transfer window but a move failed to materialise for the former Platinum Stars player as the Eastern Cape-based outfit reportedly abandoned their advances.

It now remains to be seen whether or not Zulu will be able to eventually impress Hunt and find a new football home.

Zulu though has his work cut out if he does indeed earn a deal at the club with Wits already boasting the likes of Sifiso Hlanti and Lehlohonolo Nonyane, who are both seen to be highly capable full-backs.
