Cape Town - Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Brighton Mhlongo has been impressed by the quality of new recruits the club has acquired.
The Buccaneers are going through a rebuilding phase ahead of the upcoming season under new coach Muhsin Ertugral after placing no less than six players on transfer list including big name players like Sifiso Myeni and Lehlohonolo Majoro.
The club have so far signed striker Ayanda Nkosi, Abbubaker Mobara, Riyaad Norodien, Bernard Morrison and Jackson Mabokgwane.
"So far so good, the spirits are high and we are all getting used to the new coach," Mhlongo said on the club's website.
"The great thing about the new players is that we all ready knew each other from when they were with their old teams. So now we are just gelling and supporting each other.
"The new players are a good addition to the team. They also want to prove themselves and show that they are here on merit which is a good thing.
"As senior players we have done our best to welcome the new guys and we have made them aware that our supporters expect to win.
"They mustn't focus on the pressure but rather relax, enjoy the journey and understand that we are a family here. The important thing for them is to always remember who they are and never lose sight of their goals."
