Rising South Africa star Sibusiso Zuma is not as keen for a big-money move away from FC Copenhagen as was previously thought, that according to the dizzying dribbler's agent Gary Blumberg.
"It is definitely a possibility that he will remain where he is," revealed Blumberg. "It's even a probable possibility provided FC Copenhagen come up with an acceptable offer."
The outrageously skilled 26-year-old has delighted crowds in Denmark ever since he arrived at the capital from South African side Orlando Pirates in 1999 and was deservedly crowned Danish Player of the Year in 2001.
Earlier this campaign, Zuma attracted the attention of several of Europe's top clubs – including Bayern Munich and Arsenal – with some truly inspired performances in the heart of FC Copenhagen's attack during their brief stint in the Champions League. Then, he went on to terrorize a whole host of defenders from the Dark Continent during the African Nations Cup.
Although it looks like Zuma may stay in the Copenhagen for at least another year – his contract at the club is good until 2005 – the Danish champions are predicted to have a real task holding on to him for much longer after the World Cup, where he will be very much a man to watch.
