"I am a bit nervous because it is my first time in Europe, but I am okay, I am up for the challenge,"
Mayambela told DIFTV.
"I came to train at the club to see if the coach will like me and maybe sign at the club. I met the players, I think they are a nice bunch of guys. I think it’s been a nice first day," he told DIFTV.
"I had a session with the coach just to relax the body after the flight. It wasn't bad (training in the cold) cause we were inside. But outside, it was cold, jo. We are not used to those temperatures," added Mayambela.
Mayambela played for Aces this season, but left AmaZayoni after making just one substitute appearance.
