Following his big move to the Soweto giants from Golden Arrows in this transfer window, Mahachi is in the process of familiarising himself with his new teammates at Bucs, like all of the team’s new signings. 

The 24-year-old Zimbabwean winger has been with the team in Zambia for their pre-season training.

“It will take time for me to gel because I’m naturally a shy person. It helps having my Zimbabwean homeboy Marshall Munetsi, and people like Thembinkosi Lorch whom I enjoy speaking to. The process has also been made simple by the fact that I know most of the players here. Even when we were on opposing sides in the past, we would take time to exchange a few pleasantries after the match. The general consensus for me is that I feel at home here, the reception from the coaching staff and players has been overwhelmingly positive,” Mahachi told Bucs’ official website.

Senior players like Mpho Makola and Happy Jele have been helpful in making Mahachi get used to playing for a big club of Bucs’ statue.

“The senior players have also played their part. Mpho Makola was concerned that I may be scared to play my natural game so he encouraged me to express myself and enjoy playing my football because from what he has seen, that’s where I’m at my best,” he said.  

“Happy Jele has also spoken to me about the supporters. They are very demanding, but also very knowledgeable and understanding if you’re doing the right things and giving your best. We have a huge fan base and there will be big crowds everywhere we play so I should learn to play under pressure quickly and find a way to use the energy of the crowd to my advantage. Happy made it clear that I need to understand that the supporters are always there for the team,” concluded the talented player.
