Kudakwashe Mahachi believes joining Orlando Pirates was a huge transition in his career.

The 24-year-old winger spent three years at Golden Arrows, on loan from Mamelodi Sundowns. He completed his move to the Soweto Giants last month.

Speaking in an interview with the club’s media, Mahachi admits he will need some time to adapt.

“It is a huge transition coming from a small team to a big team, and it takes a bit of time to understand because there is a huge difference in approach,” he said.

“We train differently, we prepare differently and the overall level of professionalism is amazing. Not only do we analyse the opponent which is the norm but we also have to analyse ourselves from a group perspective and at an individual level.”

The former Chicken Inn player will play alongside fellow Zimbabwean, Marshall Munetsi.

“It will take time for me to gel because I’m naturally a shy person. It helps to have my Zimbabwean homeboy Marshall Munetsi and people like Thembinkosi Lorch whom I enjoy speaking to. The process has also been made simple by the fact that I know most of the players here,” Mahachi added.
