Sibusiso Zuma: My Dream Team


Bafana Bafana legend Sibusiso 'Rhee' Zuma picks the 11 best players he featured alongside in an illustrious football career spanning two decades.

Zuma returned to South African shores at the age of 35 to feature in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) with Vasco da Gama.

The 46-year-old gave his opinion as to why the current crop of local footballers find it difficult to match his many exploits in Europe.

"I think we lost it somewhere, the info is not reaching the current generation of players somehow," Zuma tells

"In our time when we got to the national team, we spent a lot of time on the bench. Just travelling with the team getting used to the African conditions.

"That allowed the senior players to pass the information to us. They encouraged us to push for overseas moves. Phil Masinga was telling us how he was doing in Italy, how difficult it was all those things we knew before we even moved overseas.

"That's the reason these guys I have selected in my Dream Team played for close to 10 years in the national team.

"We do have talent in South Africa, but we need to fix our development."

Besides playing in countries such as Denmark and Germany with Armenia Bielefeld, Zuma also represented South Africa at the 2002 FIFA World Cup.
