Cape Town - Orlando Pirates attacker Luvuyo Memela believes newly-signed Abbubaker Mobara and Riyaad Norodien will adjust well at the club.

Pirates made the surprise announcement of the double signing from Ajax Cape Town earlier in the week.

The duo will form part of the direction the Buccaneers will be taking next season under new coach Muhsin Ertugral.

"I'm happy for them, especially because they are still young," Memela told Goal website.

"They have been doing well for Ajax so it's a huge step for them, but I think for any other player if you are coming from Ajax, I don't think it will be that difficult adjusting to the club.

"It's a bit tough to play (for Pirates). The only challenge is that they are going to have to perform. The other challenge is that they will have to deal with the fans because Ajax don't have as many fans as Pirates."
