Johannesburg - New Kaizer Chiefs signing Tefu Mashamaite has revealed that moving to the Soweto giants is a dream come true.

Mashamaite signed on the dotted line for Chiefs on Wednesday following the departure of Valery Nahayo to Belgian club Gent.

The 26-year-old is over the moon at joining from Bidvest Wits and believes this is a big step in his already impressive career to date.

"Life is about progress. Chiefs are a big team that always challenges for trophies season in and season out," Mashamaite told Amakhosi's official website.

"I also want to be challenged as a player and after sitting down with my manager we thought the Club would provide me with an opportunity to grow.

"I also spoke to the likes of my homeboy Punch (Masenamela), Itumeleng Khune, Shabba (Siphiwe Tshabalala) and Yeye (Reneilwe Letsholonyane). As for Jimmy (Tau), I always talk to him over the phone.

"They also made it easy for me to make the move to Chiefs.

"It is not going to be easy but I am going to work hard because I am here to win things."

"The first time I attended a live game was back in 1992 - the Bob Save Final where Chiefs beat Jomo Cosmos 2-1. It was a proud moment for me as a youngster to watch the galaxy of stars at Chiefs then," he added.
