Former Wits Winger On Bucs' Pre-Season

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 17, 2018 03:57 PM

Former Bidvest Wits winger Vincent Pule has spoken about being an Orlando Pirates player following his shock move to the black and white side of Soweto when he was initially linked with a move to Kaizer Chiefs. 

The gifted 26-year-old has been part of Pirates' pre-season programme with the squad that travelled to Zambia to prepare for the upcoming 2018/19 season.

“It has been a great experience; I’m loving the team environment. We do everything together from training, analysis and even eating. We are a unit and that is making it easy to gel with the guys and get used to everybody around me,” said Pule on

“I’m happy here, I was made to feel at home from the moment I arrived and I’m amazed at the team spirit and the level of support that I have received from the coaches and the players.” 

The pacey winger further added that the style of play at the Buccaneers was different to what he has become accustomed to at Wits.

“Orlando Pirates has a completely different style of play than what I was used to at Wits. I was worried when I first arrived and I heard Coach Rhulani speaking about the Pirates game model. I found it difficult to understand especially since the focus was more on the theoretical aspect of the game. 

“So far so good. I have played with some of the guys before, Ben Motswari and Xola Mlambo from Wits, while Thabo Qalinge and I go back to our Bafana Bafana time together. I go even further back with Luvuyo Memela and Thembinkosi Lorch. It’s a homecoming of sorts with all the people around me,” added the winger.

Pule also noted as a Pirates player, he and his new teammates have a responsibility to the club and its supporters.

“We have to do our level best to add value and contribute to the Club’s culture of winning,” he concluded.
