Former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Willard Katsande, who joined DStv Premiership newcomers Sekhukhune United after a decade at the Soweto giants, said he relishes playing football in a different environment.
The Zimbabwean (35) said he is at Sekhukhune to compete, and not to make up the numbers. He said:
It’s a great opportunity for me to play in a different environment. I’m not just coming here to make up the numbers, I’m here to compete, and the team has shown lots of support to me.
The former Warriors captain was one of five new additions unveiled by Sekhukhune, who have so far, signed up to 18 new players ahead of the 2021/2022 campaign.
He was speaking at his unveiling alongside defenders Cheslyn Jampies, Justice Chabalala, midfielder, Blessing Sarupinda and goalkeeper Toaster Nsabata on Friday. Added Katsande:
So all I want to do is repay them by giving 100% commitment. What I’d like to say to the fans is just to continue supporting the team. We will also give our all, and we’re assembling a good squad.
Even the squad which did well enough to win promotion had exciting talents, so we will do our best to find the right balance and continue to make you guys happy.
Katsande and Sarupinda will link up with a couple of Zimbabweans at Sekhukhune who include goalkeeper and captain Tapuwa Kapini, striker Charlton Mashumba and midfielder Talent Chawapiwa.
