Bafana Bafana Legend

Sibusiso Zuma

Sibusiso Zuma (Durban, South Africa, 1975) was one of the best players in South Africa’s recent history. He played for African Wanderers and Orlando Pirates before signing for Denmark’s FC Copenhagen, where he had an extremely successful spell and is considered one of the club’s biggest legends. His back-kick goal against Brondby in the final match of the 2001 Superliga Championship, in which Copenhagen secured the title, was voted the greatest moment in the history of the club.

In 2005, Zuma signed for Bundesliga’s Arminia Bielefeld, where he played three seasons. He also played for Nordjaelland and Vasco de Gama before retiring in South Africa’s SuperSport United.

He represented South Africa 67 times and scored 13 goals. He played for his country at the 2002 FIFA World Cup and captained the Bafana Bafana at the 2006 African Cup of Nations.

Zuma is highly involved fighting against poverty and committed to giving back to the community. Since 2010 he runs the Sibusiso Zuma Foundation, which works with young kids with HIV.
