Cape Town - Former Chippa United coach Roger Sikhakhane is confident David Zulu will be able to handle the pressure that comes with playing for Kaizer Chiefs.

The striker was snapped up from the Chilli Boys during the current transfer period, just days after the Port Elizabeth outfit sacked Sikhakhane as head coach.

And while Zulu was an unused substitute in Friday's 1-0 friendly defeat against Hoffenheim, Sikhakhane believes the South Africa international is set for a highly successful career with the Glamour Boys.

"Chiefs is big team and the pressure will be there from the supporters,” Sikhakhane told KickOff.

"But I think he knows how to deal with those situations.

"For him to gain confidence and get the supporters on his side, he will certainly have to put the ball into the back of the net. And as striker, you must also create important goals."

The tactician added: "He is good player but not a top man or an out-and-out striker. He is a second striker who likes to play with freedom and run with the ball, and if you give him that freedom and look for those little spaces, I can bet you Chiefs will get the best out of him."
