Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic coach Serame Letsoaka has backed new signing Khethokwakhe Masuku to bring creativity to the midfield.

Masuku made his return to the top flight with Pirates after spending a season with Royal Eagles in the NFD. 

The 30-year-old dribbling wizard is expected to form an exciting attacking duo with Thapelo Morena for Siwelele.

"On the right wing, we have had Morena as a runner. We are bringing in Masuku who plays different from Morena on the right-hand side," Letsoaka told Goal.com website.

"So he is going to bring a different dimension to the game on the right as oppose to Morena who has got pace on the right."

Letsoaka also believes that winger Lyle Lakay will continue to hold his own in the upcoming season.

"Look, we have been having Lyle Lakay who did very well and ended up as our top goal-scorer. Fortunately, we did not have to do too many reinforcements on that side," Letsoaka concluded.
