According to TimesLIVE, the Brazilians do not know where the player is as he was last seen at training in December.

An unnamed official says the club took a gamble by signing the player because he had troubles with his previous clubs.

“The situation is serious. Sometimes he does not attend games when he is not playing and he does not pitch when asked to play for the MDC team. The club has done everything possible to help him but he does not want to change,” the official told TimesLIVE.

“We have had meetings with some members of his family and his representatives but after a while he goes back to his wayward ways.”

Zulu joined Sundowns from Platinum Stars at the start of the season.
