Johannesburg - Orlando Pirates defender, Ntsikelelo Nyauza believes he is settling in well at the club after his transfer from NFD outfit Roses United during the January transfer window.
Speaking on Orlando Pirates' official website
, despite admitting to having a baptism of fire for the Bucs in the PSL against Mamelodi Sundowns, caretaker coach Eric Tinkler believes Nyauza is well on his way to a glittering career at the club.
“As we know I have just joined the team and being thrown into the deep (end) in a big match shows how much confidence my teammates and the technical team had in me.
"I obviously had to be at my best.
"I think I did okay – we won the match and I was part of the team so, I am happy with that.”
Nyauza also spoke about the head injury he sustained during the match.
“I think it was a corner-kick and I went for the ball,” he explains.
“I collided with a Sundowns defender and the next thing I saw blood streaming down my face.
"I tried to carry on but I got dizzy; that is why I went to the ground and called for help.
"'I got a few stiches and I then could carry on playing. In the end I’m glad I could go through the match causing no problems for the team."
