Cape Town - Helder Pelembe is determined to get his career in the PSL back on track after pen to paper with Baroka FC last week.

The 29-year-old striker has not been able to enjoy regular game-time since arriving in South Africa in the 2013/14 season - during spells with Orlando Pirates and Bloemfontein Celtic he featured in 38 league games, starting only 22 of those, and scoring just four goals.

The Mozambique international has been without a club this season and had been training with the Africa Sport Youth Development Academy before getting the call from Baroka.

He now plans to repay the Limpopo team’s faith in him after a difficult spell on the sidelines.

"I sit and analyse and I don't remember myself doing wrong or not performing where I have played in the past," Pelembe told KickOff.

"But for strange reasons that I don't know till now I stopped playing. Definitely it is difficult to stay without work, it's not easy for anyone so I thank God for everything he has done for me until today.

"I will work hard because of the trust they are putting in me. And I want to help them reach their objectives. 

"My targets are not far from the other players. I'm too, ambitious as a human being and player. First I want to adjust myself to Baroka and for sure the rest will follow."

Pelembe has penned an 18-month deal with Bakgaga and joins with the club sitting bottom of the Premiership table.
