William Twala says he feels at home in a Chippa United jersey having made his breakthrough into the Premier Soccer League with the club.
The 30-year-old former Orlando Pirates, Kaizer Chiefs and Free State Stars winger was loaned out to the Chilli Boys in 2012.
He made an impact at the club for a few spells before earning a move to Amakhosi in 2016, having also spent time on loan with Golden Arrows and Maritzburg United.
Twala re-joined Chippa January last year and has scored five goals in 21 games this season.
Speaking to the Sowetan, Twala explained: “At Chippa, I feel much more at home. My breakthrough in the PSL was with Chippa.
“Whenever I wear the Chippa shirt I happen to perform better because it’s like I am playing for my biological father’s team… I have a wonderful relationship with Mr Mpengesi.
“The chairman is like my real father. We speak, not so often, but every time we happen to speak, we have a fruitful conversation.
“I think that’s why I am enjoying myself more at Chippa. He always puts emphasis on the commitment.”
He added: “At Pirates I was in my entry level of my career and at Chiefs I was a bit aware of things.
“Both clubs helped me grow. Sometimes you don’t win in football but win in life.”
