The 26-year-old says he is honoured to have signed a contract with a team of Bucs’ magnitude. While the former Bidvest Wits midfielder acknowledges the pressure that comes with playing for Bucs, the Dobsonville-born player says he would like to see the team win trophies during his time with them.    

“It’s a great honour to sign a contract with a team of this magnitude. This is not just a small team, it is a huge team that comes with a lot of pressure. When we went to play in CAF with Wits, most people were familiar with the Orlando Pirates badge, South Africa is synonymous with Orlando Pirates in Africa. Therefore, becoming an Orlando Pirates player is really overwhelming and it’s an honour for me to part of the Bucs family,” Mlambo told Bucs’ official website.

“I would really like to see the team do well. I would like to learn from Orlando Pirates as a club with such a huge history. I’m sure I can only grow here and I would like to contribute positively to the history of the Club as well. I would love to see Pirates winning trophies while I’m around because it has been a while since the Club won silverware. I would like to be part of the crop of players that bring positive change to the Club. 

“It’s an honour to be part of the family and I’m happy for the warm welcome they have given me. Even before the deal was finalised I could see on social media that they wanted me here through their responses. I know the guys are doing well but I’m willing to add value on top of what has already been done. I am glad that I’m finally here and I want to learn a lot from the team and from the supporters about the culture of the Club and hopefully I can put a smile on the supporters’ faces and make them happy people again,” said the midfielder.
