Orlando Pirates’ new signing Nkanyiso Zungu is settling in well at the club, despite having yet to start training with the side.
Zungu joined the club carrying an injury when he was signed from Stellenbosch FC on last day of the January transfer window.
The 24-year-old has explained his experience when he first arrived at the club and being around new people and teammates.
“My first day was a daunting experience, sought of like your first day at school – new people, new environment. My situation was made even more difficult because I joined the team during mid-season and not at the beginning where it’s easier to get used to each other during pre-season camps and stuff like that. Mid-season, guys have already formed bonds. But I found I was welcomed with open arms, everybody is friendly here, they are really the “Happy People” and I am just honoured to be part of it,” he told Pirates’ official website.
The attacking midfielder has also given more details on the injury that has derailed his progress at the Buccaneers.
“I wish I could be training already but unfortunately, I came in carrying a groin injury, so for now I am undergoing rehabilitation with the team’s physios. It’s a bit frustrating that I’m neither training nor playing with my teammates yet, it feels like I am getting left behind, but I love playing so I have to keep positive and focus on healing so I can get back to playing,” he added.
