Cape Town - SuperSport United have confirmed that veteran striker Sibusiso 'Rhee' Zuma will not be with the club in the 2014/15 Absa Premiership season.
According to the Soccer Laduma website, the club’s head coach, Cavin Johnson, praised the player for his commitment, before explaining that the club will be focusing on giving their younger players an opportunity.

Zuma started his career for South African clubs African Wanderers and Orlando Pirates. In June 2000, he joined Danish side FC Copenhagen where he helped the club win its second Danish championship and was voted into the club's hall of fame for his efforts in the 2004/05 season. After five and a half years at FC Copenhagen, Zuma was sold to German Bundesliga club Arminia Bielefeld for €1 million in July 2005.

In June 2008 Zuma signed for Mamelodi Sundowns. He was released in the summer of 2009 and in October 2009 he had a trial period with Danish club FC Nordsjælland, eventually signing a one-year deal with the club.

In 2010 Zuma joined Vasco da Gama for whom he played 27 matches, before leaving to join Matsatsantsa in 2011.

Zuma sits in seventh place on Bafana Bafana's all-time top goalscorer list with 13 goals in his 67 matches for the national team.

SuperSport United finished the past season in fifth spot, 21 points adrift of league winners Mamelodi Sundowns.
