Zuma says he's a team player

Johannesburg - Sibusiso Zuma has put the team first ahead of Vasco da Gama's top-flight debut against Soweto giants Orlando Pirates.

The men from the Mother City face the Buccaneers on the opening day of the Premier Soccer League season at Cape Town Stadium on Friday.

Zuma, the former Bafana Bafana captain, spent two seasons with Pirates but has played down the reunion, insisting his sole focus is on helping his new club.

"I'm looking forward to this game in the same way that the rest of the Vasco players are," he told the PSL's website.

"That is from the perspective that this is our first ever game in the PSL and to make it even better, it's at the Cape Town Stadium, against one of the biggest clubs in the country and there will be a great turn-out of supporters."

The 35-year-old forward had a troubled spell with Mamelodi Sundowns in the 2008/9 season due to injuries, and he scored just one goal in a dozen appearances for the Brazilians.

Following his failure at Chloorkop, Zuma played in Denmark with FC Nordsjælland and has returned to South Africa reinvigorated.

He said: "I very much believe I can contribute positively to the team's cause. I am 100% fit now and ready to go. If I can maintain my fitness I'm sure the goals will come".
