Zuma Linked To Spurs Move

Former Kaizer Chiefs and AmaZulu winger Dumisani Zuma is being linked with a move to Cape Town Spurs and the player has arrived in Cape Town, iDiski Times has learned.

Zuma is currently without a club after being one of many players who left cash-strapped Moroka Swallows in the January transfer window.   

He was one of those who were found guilty of having broken the club’s conduct for refusing to play in the two DStv Premiership matches in December against Mamelodi Sundowns and Golden Arrows, respectively.  

Those six points were forfeited and were handed to both Sundowns and Arrows, while Swallows were fined R1 million by the PSL prosecutor Zola Majavu. However, they were asked to pay R400,000 immediately and R600,000 were suspended on condition that they were not found guilty of the same offence within two years.    

Swallows, legally, also instituted its disciplinary committee based on the conduct of the players and Zuma was one of those who fell off the cliff by the DC. 

The 28-year-old had joined Swallows at the beginning of this season after he was let go by AmaZulu, reuniting with his former coach Steve Komphela.  

But Komphela, just like Zuma, is out of the door at Swallows, who announced his departure on Monday.  

At Spurs, Zuma could be reunited with another former coach in Ernst Middendorp, with both coming close to winning the league title with Kaizer Chiefs in the 2019/20 season but missing out in the last game with Sundowns winning the trophy instead.  

He was a super-sub at that time, setting up the second goal for Samir Nurkivic as Chiefs beat Sundowns 2-0 in the first round of the league at Loftus Stadium that season. Overall, he netted three times and set up three more in 24 league appearances that campaign.

Spurs and Middendorp are bolstering the side intending to survive, having been at the bottom of the table for most of the season. They have accumulated seven points after 17 matches after winning their second league game of the season when they beat Zuma’s former club AmaZulu at home when the domestic program resumed this past weekend.  

The Urban Warriors are now six points behind second-from-bottom Richards Bay, who lost to Sekhukhune United.
