Cape Town - New Bloemfontein Celtic winger Khethokwakhe Masuku was pleasantly surprised at the level of professionalism at the club.
The 30-year-old made his return to the Premiership after spending last season in the National First Division with Royal Eagles.
Masuku expressed his gratitude to the Siwelele management for having faith in him.
"I am happy to be part of the family already. The facilities here (Siwelele Park) are absolutely mind blowing. There is that element of professional setup that immediately drives one to work hard," he told the club's official website.
"After the unveiling, I told my wife that in my entire football career, I have never experienced such breath-taking mood and resounding welcome.
"We were truly dumbfounded and even heard the guys saying that such a welcome from the supporters must be complimented with a silverware come end of the season.
"You see, that has reignited the winning mentality and I personally felt honoured to be welcomed like a hero even before kicking a ball for Celtic."
