Cape Town - Reneilwe Letsholonyane revealed he is settling in well at SuperSport United, while also indicating his desire to help the club cement their names among the greats.

The veteran midfielder reunited with former coach Stuart Baxter at Matsatsantsa after a successful eight-year spell with the Naturena-based outfit.

"I think things are going well and, when it comes to the relationship with the other players, it is good. We are getting to know each other better. I'm enjoying myself, definitely," he told Sowetan Live.

Yeye, as he is affectionately known in the football fraternity, stated that he still has the hunger to succeed despite having clinched almost every piece of silverware on offer in his career.

"For me, it didn't stop at Chiefs. I'm still hungry to do well and to grow. I want to be a part of a generation that helps this institution put its name up there among other big brands.

"I believe that we have good players, a team that has won the league a few times in the past years. We will try to do our best for the team.

"I know what Stuart wants and he knows what I can do. He had a big impact on my career playing wise and I'm very happy to work with him again," he added.
