Cape Town - Cyril Chibwe is relishing the chance to strut his stuff at Platinum Stars following a successful loan spell with Garankuwa United in the National First Division.

The promising goalkeeper admits he found the going tough at times last season, and is grateful to be back among some familiar faces ahead of the new Absa Premiership campaign.

While he admits that he does not yet feel ready to seriously challenge for a first-team berth, he is relishing the challenge nonetheless and hopes to continue to improve.

Speaking to the club's official website, Chibwe said: "Platinum Stars FC made me who I am today and it has always been my wish to come back.

"It's always good to be home. I got a big welcome when I got back, and that gave me motivation to start where I left off.

"This team is different; there is that element of "Brother-Brother" that reigns within every player and staff. I love it here!"

He added: "I cannot say I am ready but I am willing to learn and there is a lot of competition in this one.

"I have learnt a lot from Mzimela, Kagiso, Bouna and Tshepo who are my colleagues now and I learn so much daily. This is not a one-man game but we need each other especially us in the goalkeeping department."
