The Brazilians most prized asset, Bongani Zungu will join Portuguese club Vitoria de Guimaraes next season, but the South African team has already missed him for most of this campaign.
When talking about whether Zungu could return at any point this season, coach Pitso Mosimane wasn’t confident but felt it might only be possible for the very last game.
“I would have loved to see him back in action again this season but I don’t think so,” Mosimane told Goal.com
“He has started his rehab but it will take time before he fully recovers.
“I would have loved him to at least get a few games before he leaves.”
Last season their former captain Alje Schut recovered in time for the Nedbank Cup Final, beating Ajax Cape Town on penalties and saying farewell to Sundowns fans in style.
“I don’t think it will be possible and that’s part of football.
“If it works out and we reach the finals of the Nedbank Cup then he can maybe play like Alje Schut did last season,” Mosimane concluded to Goal.
