New player to join the Orlando Pirates. According to Nkosinathi Sibisi, the move to the Buccaneers was something beyond his "wildest dreams," and he considers it an honor to be playing for the Soweto giants.
Sibisi was one of the players acquired by Pirates from Golden Arrows in order to strengthen the team in preparation for the 2022–2023 DStv Premiership season. Sibisi had previously played for Golden Arrows. The new 26-year-old Pirates signing, who has been playing for Arrows since 2015, says that he has noticed a lot of differences since joining Bucs. He has been with Arrows since 2015.
"Both the honor and the privilege are entirely yours. I never in a million years imagined that it would occur. "It's safe to say that it's something beyond my wildest dreams," the new defender for the Buccaneers said in an interview with the club's website.
"It is quite different. For example, during the preseason for Arrows, we weren't used to going to camp because it wasn't a normal part of our routine. Not only that, but there are also things that take place off the field, such as photo shoots. It's been very different from what I was expecting, so I've had to get used to that as well.
After spending some time with them at Arrows, Sibisi believes that having familiar faces like assistant coach Mandla Ncikazi and midfielder Neverdie Makhubela at the Soweto giants has made things easier for him. In addition, he mentions that during his first session of training with the club, Paseka Mako revealed to him that he has always wished for him to play for the Pirates.
Everything has become a lot less difficult as a result, and everybody in the group has been very friendly. When I showed up for the very first time for a workout, Paseka Mako actually approached me and said, "UNkululnkulu mkhulu." I will never forget that moment (God is great). I've been hoping to have you on our team for a very long time. The positive energy that I've gotten from all of you guys has made me feel right at home.
Sibisi believes that joining a club such as the Pirates, where there is a lot of competition to be in the starting eleven, is a good thing and that it motivates players to perform to the best of their abilities.
"There is competition, but I believe that healthy competition helps everyone. It brings out the most admirable qualities in people. "There's always someone pushing the next person, and it doesn't matter who is playing in that particular position," he explained further.
