Zuma lifts Danish Cup

Sibusiso Zuma lifts Danish Cup with FC Nordsjaelland

Posted: 14 May 2010 Time: 09:53 am

Sibusiso Zuma won the Danish Cup on Thursday night, helping FC Nordsjaelland to their first ever trophy in the club's 20-year history.

They scored twice in extra-time to beat FC Midtjylland 2-0 and take the title with goals from captain Nicolai Stokholm and Bajram Fetai, a former refugee from the crisis in Yugoslavia.

Zuma came on in the 60th minute as the first change for the side and was shifted into a central role in midfield for the extra-time period, earning top marks from commentators.

The win for Nordsjaelland sees them through to a place in next season's Uefa Europa League.

Stokholm hit the post just after the hour but made no mistake six minutes into extra-time as he turned in a pass from Bille.

Nordsjælland doubled their lead soon after the restart, Fetai finishing smartly after Andreas Laudrup had failed with his effort to seal the victory.

"This is so big. I'm close to tears right now," said Fetai.

"This is what we've been fighting for all season and I'm not even sure that any of us have realised yet just what we've accomplished."

The former Bafana Bafana winger went back to Denmark in September to revive his career last year after flopping at Mamelodi Sundowns.

He had been a hero in Denmark with FC Copenhagen in his initial spell in the country, helping his club to win several League titles and Knockout Cups and also being named Footballer of the Year.

Zuma, who turns 35 next month, has made 13 appearances for his club this season but is used mainly as an impact player.

chiefs supporters must just butt out! this is not about them, this is about a player who have demonstrated amazing talent throughout the years, how many thirty five year olds former chiefs are still doing it at high level?

chiefs supporters have so much anger and at every opportunity they vent it out at anyone who might be perceived as taking their shine (rusted!)

we understand that ZUMA, VILAKAZI, BENNI, Nassief will be hurled at and the reason is simple there is no connection between themselve and Chiefs!

but supporters need to understand tha CHIEFS did not become so popular by hurling insult and critisizing any thing that is not associated with the club!

soegs, you cannot judge the entire Danish league based on a player who did not make it at Sundowns, Thats a stupid thing to do. Think about it, Vilakazi did not make it there yet he was on top of his game for both Pirates and Bafana but now he is doing well for Sundowns.

Chimps supporters (most of them) are Chimpanzees, or atleast behave like ones.

Rhee was troubled by injuries when he turned up for Sundowns and that is a fact. I would've personally preferred him ahead of Betty McCarthy...!!!!
