JOHANNESBURG – Kaizer Chiefs’ latest acquisition Letlhogonolo Mirwa said on Monday he was ecstatic to have joined the club he has followed since childhood.
“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.”
Mirwa hails from a small village called Segakwaneng, near Moruleng, a village 65km north of Rustenburg. Amakhosi snapped him up from ABC Motsepe League side Buya Msuthu, where he spent last season.
“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,” he says. “I have two beautiful sisters (Oreneile and Oretshepile) who look up to me as their older brother.”
Even though he loves football, Mirwa has always tried to find balance between the game and his studies.
