Cape Town - Bidvest Wits defender Lorenzo Gordinho
says he is relishing the fresh start he has been afforded at the Clever
Boys and is motivated to work hard.
The 25-year-old struggled for game time at former club Kaizer Chiefs
this season and was snapped up by Gavin Hunt and his team earlier this
Gordinho has merged seamlessly into his new team and is enjoying the atmosphere in the Wits dressing room.
"My new team-mates have been really good to me: I have enjoyed a good
reception from the guys and from the team," Gordinho told the official
Bidvest Wits website.
"Everyone is feeling good right now, we have a goal in mind for the
end of the season and everyone is working really hard to win the league.
I am happy to be part of it. I think we have to get maximum points from
all the remaining games: home and away.
"We have to just be result-based, not worry about anything else but
on getting all three points every game and I think if we do that we will
take the league down to the wire. Personally, I think I have adapted
well, the guys have been really welcoming.
"Everyone is very professional and does their job which is what you
need at this point in the league. Everything has been going really well
Asked whether it was a difficult decision to leave Chiefs, Gordinho
added: "I think it was an easy decision. My situation at the time wasn't
making me feel good or feel confident. I hadn't played in a long time
so when Bidvest Wits came knocking I welcomed the offer and I am
grateful to them for bringing me onboard.
"My immediate goal is to just work hard, help the team and to be ready when given the chance to play."
