Orlando Pirates central defender Olisa Ndah says he is ready to work and distinguish himself at the Premier Soccer League club.
Ndah, 23, last week completed his move from Nigerian Champions Akwa United to the South African side after a couple of weeks trial with the Buccaneers.
Ndah who has represented Nigeria at Under 23 and senior level described the switch to South Africa as “a big move” and is looking ahead to the task and fully focused on what to bring to the team.
“It’s a big move for me and I’m really happy to be here. The fans have showed me so much love, the messages have been massive. I’ve gotten a lot of messages from the fans and yeah I’m just ready to work and see what I can bring to the team,” Ndah told www.aclsports.com
A son of Rangers International of Enugu legend, Ndubuisi Ndah, Olisa admits that it could be challenging making the switch from Nigeria to South Africa but insists he is adapting to life at his new base.
“It’s actually different here because of the style of play and how the league is because it’s a bit pacy here.
“I’m acclimatizing well though, the weather has been cold for a whole now but it is actually getting better because it is going past their winter period but yeah I’m okay, I’m getting used to it, it’s a gradual process,” he added.
Ndah will wait a couple more weekends before getting a chance to make his Pirates debut due to the FIFA International window this weekend.
Orlando Pirates, who were exempted from the preliminary round of the CAF Confederation Cup will face Moroka Swallows in a league game at the Orlando Stadium on September 11.
