Cape Town - Pitso Mosimane has admitted that Sundowns cannot stand in the way of star midfielder Bongani Zungu's European aspirations.

The 22-year-old, whose contract expires in June, was strongly linked with Portuguese outfit Vitória de Guimarães in the recent transfer window and after Sundowns reportedly rejected two bids for the player, they now risk losing him on a free transfer.

Mosimane has accepted the fact the former Tuks player wants to better himself by trying to crack it in Europe.

"Zungu at the end of the season wants to go overseas, we have to respect that, he wants to go to Europe so we have to respect that," Mosimane was quoted as saying by KickOff.
