Kamhuka Grateful For Mbesuma’s Guidance In South Africa
Zimbabwean defender Victor Kamhuka praises Mbesuma for his contribution to settling in at Callies
Pretoria Callies defender Victor Kamhuka has hailed assistant coach Collins Mbesuma for playing a key role in helping him settle at the club. The Zimbabwean defender joined Callies in January and has been instrumental in the team’s impressive 12-game unbeaten run in the Motsepe Foundation Championship. Kamhuka credits Mbesuma, a former Zambian international and African top scorer, for helping him adjust to the South African league and for welcoming him as a younger brother.
Kamhuka transferred to Callies from stints in Malaysia and Vietnam, with his family being one of the reasons behind his move back to South Africa. He credits coach Kwanelo Kope for trusting him and giving him an opportunity to fight for the team. As the only Zimbabwean player in the squad, Kamhuka is keen to help the team stay in the South African second-tier division and potentially fight for promotion to the DStv Premiership next season if his contract is extended.
Kamhuka’s positive influence on Callies
Since joining Callies, Kamhuka has proven to be a valuable asset to the team, with his performances being a significant factor in the team’s impressive unbeaten run. His defensive abilities and leadership qualities have made him a standout player in the Callies squad. Kamhuka’s contributions have helped the team earn crucial points in their bid to avoid relegation and possibly gain promotion to the top tier.
The importance of settling in a new team
Settling into a new team can be a daunting experience for any player, particularly when adapting to a new league or country. Having a supportive environment can be crucial to a player’s success and can help them settle in quickly. This is where the role of experienced players, such as Mbesuma, can play a significant part in providing guidance and support to younger players. This can help players feel more comfortable in their new environment and allow them to focus on their performances on the pitch.
Kamhuka’s praise for Mbesuma highlights the importance of having a supportive team environment in football. The Zimbabwean defender’s contributions to Callies demonstrate the value of players settling in quickly and adapting to new surroundings. With Kamhuka’s help, Callies will be looking to continue their impressive form and secure their place in the South African second tier division.
