Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns captain Ramahlwe Mphahlele supports team-mate Bongani Zungu's decision to pursue his career overseas.

Zungu will leave the Brazilians when his contract expires at the end of this season in order to join Portuguese side Vitoria de Guimaraes.

Mphahlele is confident Zungu's European move will do wonders for his development as a footballer.

"Bongani must grow. He wants to go to overseas and the team is going to give him that blessing to go to Europe," he told KickOff.

"The coach is not selfish. He knows what it means to him, that's why he is letting him go. It is an opportunity for him and giving him a chance. He must go and grow as a player.

"I'm not the one to tell whether it is the right time but how are you going to know if you don't try? The only time you will know if it is the right time is try it and see. If it is not the right time it will tell.

"But I wish him all the best. I wish that he can grow. He is a very good player and I hope he succeeds," Mphahlele concluded.
