“We cannot promise mountains, but I can just say people will see a big difference and they will see good football,” said Nyirenda.
“They will see a team with a character of a champion. My biggest love of all these things is that I will be mingling with people like Pitso.
“I respect him so much, he has done great things and he is a son of Africa.
“Micho [Milutin Sredojevic] at Pirates as well and Mr [Luc] Eymael of Free State Stars. These are great guys, like Gavin Hunt who I played with at Hellenic.
“He was my captain. They have inspired me a lot and I think this is the time to rub shoulders with them.
