Sithole Excited At P Stars Move

New Platinum Stars signing, Gift Sithole, says that he already feels at home in Bafokeng after joining Dikwena.

The Siya crew revealed last month that the 31-year-old had agreed to join Stars on a short-term deal, a move that has since been confirmed by the club.

Now, the player himself has spoken out on the move, saying that he knows it will take time for him to break into the first team.

Speaking to the club’s website, Dikwena’s new number five said, “Arriving at Platinum Stars, the support staff, management and whole technical team gave me the most wonderful welcome. In just 10 minutes I already felt like I was at home and the players were like brothers to me.

“I never really thought I would play for Platinum Stars, and I remember clearly when I played against them when it was still called Silver Stars. Then I was playing for M Tigers and they were still in Modderfontein.

“I have settled in well at Phokeng, but I’m now learning the culture around and in the team. Obviously things are done differently and very professionally, and that is something I need to adjust to.

“I must work hard, in order for me to play; I believe that everyone is working hard during the training sessions. I need to add value, and not for the sake of being signed in the team. I would also want to be a part of the guys that adds silverware to the team.”

Allan Freese’s side take on Polokwane City tonight, though it remains to be seen whether the former Chippa United man will feature.
