Striker, David Zulu has told chippautdfc.co.za that he feels his game is progressing this season under the tutelage of coach Dan Malesela, and the fans can expect more, not only from him but the team as a whole.
Zulu’s contribution on the pitch has come under scrutiny from certain quarters in recent months, but he looked to have glimpses of his old self against Baroka FC late last month, where he grabbed his first goal of the season during the 4-1 win.
It was Zulu’s second start of the season after playing second fiddle to injured striker, Rhulani Manzini. His first start against SuperSport United early September lasted for only 37 minutes.
‘Zulu Warrior’ as the striker is fondly known in football circles, first joined Chippa United during 2014/2015 season following an impressive season with Black Leopards in the National First Division where he won the Top Goalscorer Award.
His eight goals, including a brilliant solo against Orlando Pirates that season earned a move to Kaizer Chiefs where he spent a year before being loaned back to the Club in January this year.
“I am feeling good about my game, it is progressing and I am not worried at all,” responded Zulu on his feelings about his game.
“It felt good to grab my first (goal) of the season against Baroka. We played a good game and the movement was good that night.
“It is my job as a striker to score goals. The goal has helped boost my confidence, and I am looking forward to picking  up from that, and do even better for the Club this season. We all believe as players that we can improve and make this a season to remember in the history of the Club.
Zulu (30) is in his third season in the elite league and believes he has now matured as a player, “I like to think that I have matured as a player since my first spell here.
“I know when to shoot, create for a teammate or create a space for a teammate to make a run. I am more of a Team player now and all I do revolves around the team. My goals are aligned to that of the team. The team comes first,” insisted the soft spoken Zulu.
Chippa United travel to Princess Magogo Stadium on Saturday, 15 October 2016 for a tantalizing encounter against Golden Arrows and Zulu added; “We must forget about our results in Polokwane and focus on the next game. Golden Arrows will be a different ball game.”
Kickoff for the game against Golden Arrows is at 15h30.
