New Kaizer Chiefs defender Letlhogonolo Mirwa has promised to repay the faith shown in him by the Soweto giants.

The left-back expressed delight after joining Amakhosi last week and said he is ecstatic to join the club he has followed since childhood.

Mirwa hails from a small village called Segakwaneng, near Moruleng in the North West province, and joined Chiefs from ABC Motsepe League side Buya Msuthu, where he spent the previous campaign.

Moreover, the left-back, also known as ‘Scara’, revealed that he looks up to Marcelo of Brazil and Real Madrid for inspiration on the pitch.

“I grew up supporting Chiefs and when the golden opportunity came to sign for Amakhosi, I didn’t think twice. To become a part of this great institution is the greatest occasion for any young player in South Africa.”

“I believe it is by God’s grace that I am here because it has not been an easy journey for me given my family background.

“I am determined to take this once in a lifetime opportunity with both hands. I am here to make my mark at Kaizer Chiefs and justify the faith the club has shown in signing me,” he concludes.

Mirwa will compete with Philani Zulu in an aim to become the club’s preferred starter at the left back spot after the departure of Tsepo Masilela.
