“Growing in Soweto all boys dream of playing for either Orlando Pirates or Kaizer Chiefs. I come from a family where most people support Pirates, except my mother who supports Chiefs. 

“For me personally, I have always supported Pirates especially during the Kosta Papic era which had abo Tso Vilakazi, Joseph Makhanya and Lebohang Mokoena. 

“So, I can say it’s definitely a dream come true for me to be playing for this team, a team with such a rich history.”
