‘Everybody welcomed the new players warmly. The set-up here is professional and the players know how to deal with the newly signed ones,’ the midfielder added.
Mkhabela also spoke about his admiration for the one-time Chiefs midfield Tinashe Nengomashe.
‘I always admired Tinashe for his immense work rate. As a youngster I always wished to play for Chiefs. Tinashe’s role inspired me to work hard to reach my goal of becoming an Amakhosi,’ he added.
‘I am very excited to be part of Chiefs. I wish to repay the club with hard work and dedication to my work.’
