According to Soccer Laduma, the 39-year-old is registered with SuperSport United as a player.
The striker admits that it was only training that has kept him going this long but once he had enough he knew that he would have to quit.
“I knew one day I’d wake up in the morning and realise I’d had enough. I told SuperSport if I woke up one day and didn’t feel up for going to training, we can just cancel the contract,” said Zuma.
“It was the motivation factor. It was very important my whole career that I wake up and want to go to training.
"You must do it with a smile and train hard. I woke up one morning and realised that it was enough for me. I love training and it was one of the reasons my career was a little bit longer. It’s also why Siyabonga Nomvethe is still playing.”
Zuma donned the colours of African Wanderers in the beginning of his career and then moved over to Orlando Pirates.
He then secured a move to Denmark where he played FC Copenhagen which is where he enjoyed much success with the club.
Zuma had a lengthy career and represent Bafana Bafana more than 60 times.
He also played for Arminia Bielefeld and FC Nordsjaelland before returning to South Africa where he played for Mamelodi Sundowns and Vasco da Gama.
