Cape Town - Orlando Pirates winger Vincent Pule says playing for the Sea Robbers after joining from Bidvest Wits in the off season has been a dream come true.

The 26-year old has been impressive in the opening games for Milutin Sredojevic's side since joining the Soweto giants from the Clever Boys in the off season.

Pule has featured in eight of the nine games played by Pirates so far into the 2018/19 season and has netted two goals.

"I think it's overwhelming since I came here at Pirates. I have been getting the support from everyone, the coaches and players. I think it's something special for me," Pule told SuperSport.

"As you have seen, I have been playing like I think every game and it's something special for me considering where I'm coming from.

"The Season we won the league at Wits, I did not play that much, but last season I did play and this season I have played in almost every game.

"I think the game model is different, at Wits mostly you play on second balls, but at Pirates we build from the back and I think it's something that has changed into my game.

"The coach has told us the attacking players to have movement when the likes of Xola Mlambo, Ben Motshwari and Musa Nyatama have the ball because they are capable of giving you those passes. We have the freedom to move."
