Orlando Pirates’ new signing Xola Mlambo has started training with his new teammates at the club.
Mlambo’s signing with Bucs was announced by the club on Monday and the Buccaneers have since confirmed that the midfielder, who has joined the club from Bidvest Wits, started training with the team on Tuesday.
“Today was a great day. Joining a big club like Orlando Pirates and having my first training session with them was great. I met with the coaches and they gave me a warm welcome along with my teammates. The session was interesting and I learnt different things to what I’m used to but it was a great experience,” Mlambo told Bucs’ official website.
Bucs are scheduled to play an Absa Premiership match against Ajax Cape Town in the Mother City on Wednesday evening.
“The whole day was interesting for me, I found a different vibe and atmosphere and found a bunch of really happy people. I was welcomed warmly by everybody. The words of encouragement from the players, coaches, the kit guys, and security was a very positive thing for me. I have never felt so welcomed at a new place, I honestly feel at home,” said the central midfielder.
