Cape Town - Golden Arrows defender Musa Bilankulu believes his career has been resuscitated after rejoining the Premiership club.

The 31-year-old returned to Abafana Bes'thende in January after spending two seasons with Bloemfontein Celtic. His first spell at Arrows initially ended when he joined Bidvest Wits in 2013.

Bilankulu is looking forward to next season, with Arrows looking to secure a top-eight finish after coming in ninth last term.

"I think it was important for my career to return back to the club that I started my professional football at," he told Goal website.

"I think I arrived at the right time also because as a team we were doing well. We were just narrowly unlucky to miss out on the top-eight on the last day.

"We lost to Tuks [University of Pretoria] and SuperSport [United] and Pirates [Orlando] played to a draw and so we missed out.

"But I'm really happy to be back at the club where I began my career. I feel at home and I think my career also needed the move.

"Obviously, there is complete difference from the last time I was here but I am confident in the players that we have, they are as capable, they are young and they are ambitious and they have proven that last season.

"It's not that I was not enjoying my football where I was but I am more at home here. I was happy with what I contributed and I am looking forward to the new season."
