Mahachi Speaks On His Pirates Move, Thanks Chairman

Kudakwashe Mahachi Opens Up On His Orlando Pirates Move

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 17, 2018 06:57 PM

Kudakwashe Mahachi has revealed how he has been welcomed at Orlando Pirates since his arrival at the club.

Mahachi is seen as one of the marquee signings for the Soweto giants, having joined the club from Golden Arrows.

Speaking on the Bucs’ official website, the Zimbabwean winger has thanked chairman Irvin Khoza for signing him for the club.

“Firstly, I would like to thank the Chairman and the coaches for giving me an opportunity to come and play for this big team. It is definitely a dream come true for me because I feel that playing for this Soweto giant is the pinnacle for any footballer,” Mahachi told the club's official website.  

“I’m feeling happy because the welcome has been great. It is a huge transition coming from a small team to a big team and it takes a bit of time to understand because there is a huge difference in approach. We train differently, we prepare differently and the overall level of professionalism is amazing. Not only do we analyse the opponent which is the norm but we also have to analyse ourselves from a group perspective and at an individual level,” he said. 

“We have a big Technical Team and each of them play a part in improving us as players. We have coaches, analysts, sport scientists, physiotherapists, doctors and our support staff... all are dedicated and focused on improving us as players and giving us everything we need to succeed. It’s definitely a new environment for me but I think I’m getting used to it,” added the Zimbabwean.

“The Club is playing good football as evidenced by the second place finish in the Absa Premiership last season. The coaches are trying, by all means, to make us new guys understand the culture of the Club and the game model they want us to pursue. Orlando Pirates is a passing team, that plays fast-paced football and applying pressure high up the pitch. They’re a team that look to control the pace and rhythm of a match.  

“The coaches are making sure that we are physically fit and working on certain rhythms as a playing unit. We are learning the Club’s way and seeing how and where we fit into it. Its still early but the coaches seem happy with our progress so far,” said Mahachi.

Always saw you as a great winger, but its now time you stepped up a bar higher because Lorch, Qalinge, Memela, Pule, Mako to name a few are also there, but you are capable enough.

Arrows are like Builders' development academy, there is nothing we can do about it, not about business really.
