Lekoelea who played for Pirates between 1995 and 2005 said that "The problem with players that come from small teams, they struggle when they move to big clubs because of lack of belief in themselves, my advice to them is to never change your attitude just because you are now at Pirates, be yourself and be ready to fight", as quoted by SoccerLaduma.
Lekoelea who debuted in the local league in 1994 at the age of 15 and became the league's youngest scorer in the league in 1995 at the age of 16. He also played for Maritzburg United and Platinum Stars.
For Xoki and Sibisi, they will be looking to fight for their places at the club and claim a starting berth at the club especially as Pirates announced a new coach on Saturday, with Spanish coach Jose Riveiro joining the club on a 3 year contract.
