Cosmos newcomer eager to impress

Transfer News

Cosmos recruited the left-footed midfielder this month to fill the gap left by Linda Mntambo’s move to Chippa United.

“I am happy to be in Cosmos and looking forward to helping the team achieve its major objective of winning promotion to the Absa Premiership,” Zungu told the club's website.

“So far so good, I received a very warm welcome from the lads and I feel at home already,” added Zungu, who turns 22 on January 23.

Zungu began his professional career at AmaZulu in 2011. He moved to Durban FC in 2014 before returning to Usuthu.

Ezenkosi have also recalled striker Lefa Hlongwane from a six-month loan spell at Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhadila.

The 24-year-old featured in eight league games for the Venda-based NFD side, scoring four goals.

Hlongwane originally joined Cosmos from Royal Eagles in 2016, netting twice in 15 league appearances in 2016/17.

Meanwhile, Tebogo Mabula rejoined the rest of the squad in training last week after recovering from a knee injury sustained in November.

Mduduzi Sibeko and Bojosi 'Josta' Manjoe have also regained fitness ahead of Saturday's trip to promotion rivals Real Kings FC.

Jomo Sono's side are two points behind NFD leaders Highlands Park after 15 games.
