Brian Hlongwa is spending the 2017/18 season at Real Kings in the NFD, where he is on loan from Pirates. The midfielder has spoken about the lessons he has learnt during his time with the KZN outfit. 

“The experience has taught me to be professional in my approach. I have learnt to respect my job as a footballer and respect my teammates and technical staff. It’s not to say that I didn’t do it before, but when you are in the juniors you play with your friends and age mates. So when something goes wrong it’s easy to react in a certain way because we are all kids and buddies,” Hlongwa told Pirates’ official website.

“Out here, you are playing with people from all walks of life and different experiences. Some are older than you so you need to behave accordingly, even in the heat of battle. There are valuable life lessons because how you conduct yourself on the field also says a lot about who you are. I’ve not only grown as a player but as an individual as well,” the player added.
