New Bidvest Wits signing Lorenzo Gordinho has admitted that he is excited for the challenge that awaits him and is ready to hit the ground running with The Clever Boys, Sport24 reported.
Gordinho joined Wits from Kaizer Chiefs after he struggled to make the starting lineup this season and head coach Gavin Hunt used the opportunity to quickly sign him up.
The 25-year-old is currently enjoying his time at his new club, integrating himself into the squad and adapting to the Wits environment,
"My new team-mates have been really good to me: I have enjoyed a good reception from the guys and from the team," he told the club's official website.
"Everyone is feeling good right now, we have a goal in mind for the end of the season and everyone is working really hard to win the league. I am happy to be part of it. I think we have to get maximum points from all the remaining games: home and away.
"We have to just be result-based, not worry about anything else but on getting all three points every game and I think if we do that we will take the league down to the wire. Personally, I think I have adapted well, the guys have been really welcoming.
"Everyone is very professional and does their job which is what you need at this point in the league. Everything has been going really well so far."
Gordinho also added that despite having spent ten years at Chiefs, one would have expected it to be a difficult decision to leave but he believes it was the right time for him to leave and involve himself in a new challenge.
"I think it was an easy decision. My situation at the time wasn't making me feel good or feel confident. I hadn't played in a long time so when Bidvest Wits came knocking I welcomed the offer and I am grateful to them for bringing me on board.
"My immediate goal is to just work hard, help the team and to be ready when given the chance to play."
