Kaizer Chiefs winger, William Twala, has shared his thoughts about his AmaKhosi debut in the win over Bloemfontein Celtic.
The former Orlando Pirates was introduced in the second half and put in an impressive display, as he won a penalty, which Willard Katsande calmly converted.
“I felt blessed and it was a dream come true when Doctor (Khumalo) called my name in the traveling squad. I couldn’t believe my ears for a moment. The next challenge was the trip to Bloemfontein, it was an emotional moment," Twala told the club's official website.
“Traveling to Bloemfontein gave me time to settle and ease the nerves a bit.
“Words of support and encouragement came from one teammate to another. The moment of truth came when I was named in the 18-man team, as a substitute.”
Twala admits he was nervous before the match against the Free State outfit, although he reveals his family gave him the support.
“They give me strong support. My knees were shaking when I received the first ball from Yeye (Reneilwe Letsholonyane) and it was then that I realised that I am really part of the Amakhosi Family.”
The 25-year-old was also pleased to contribute towards collecting three points for the Absa Premiership champions.
"It was a dream start for what I wish will blossom into a good football career at Amakhosi. I was emotional after the match and all glory goes to the Almighty," he added.
