Bidvest Wits coach Roger de Sa says his decision to sign Masibusane Zongo was based purely on talent.
The 21-year-old has developed some reputation for being a ‘problem child', but De Sa tells KickOff.com he has previously got the best out of players who were on the path to self-destruction. "Let's give him [Zongo] a chance and let's see what would happen," De Sa says. "I wasn't concerned about Emille Baron's history or Wayne Roberts or OJ [Mbulelo Mabizela] or Thando Mngomeni. They all performed for me… Respect and trust them and they will respect you and that goes for Zongo," he says. Zongo will fill the void left by Sifiso Myeni, who has signed for Orlando Pirates. "Also, Thando and Nyiko [Tshabangu] are out injured so we needed a player there [left wing]," De Sa concludes. Follow me on Twitter @TTM16
