Philani Zulu is a versatile player, who can be positioned at left-back, left-wing and in a central midfield role. He is technically sound and a fine crosser of the ball. He’s disciplined from a tactical point of view. Philani started his career at Maritzburg City before moving to neighbours Maritzburg United. He made his PSL debut for the Team of Choice against Jomo Cosmos on 12 May 2012. Zulu enjoyed an excellent 2015/2016 season for Maritzburg, playing in all league games, but didn’t feature much last season due to his unwillingness to renew his contract with the Pietermaritzburg-based outfit. He joined Kaizer Chiefs on a free transfer for the 2017/2018 season.
