BEST PLAYER

Meanwhile, Ntshumayelo had a chat with Thabiso Mosia.

The Radio 2000 journalist took a moment to ask the former SuperSport United star to name the best player he ever played with.

“For me, Zongo is the best player I’ve ever seen in my life. The things he used to do since we were young,” said Ntshumayelo.

“I’ve seen players that talk football; then they don’t deliver. He used to talk football, the same thing he was talking about you would see in the field.

“Zongo is that player who was fit. He can showboat; also, he was a direct player. When he wants to play, no one can stand in from of him from a young age,” the player known as “Bibo” added.
