Bidvest Wits goalkeeper Brighton Mhlongo believes he made the right choice by joining the Clever Boys, despite not getting much game time.
The 29-year-old shotstopper joined from fellow Absa Premiership outfit Chippa United in 2018 and has only made two appearances under Gavin Hunt.
The former Orlando Pirates goalkeeper faces stiff competition from Brandon Peterson for the No 1 jersey following the departure of Ricardo Goss to Mamelodi Sundowns.
However, Mhlongo admits he feels like he belongs at the club and is determined to fight for his place in the squad.
‘Most people would say I’m not getting any game time, to be honest I did not work out initially as planned because I would have wanted to establish myself and start playing but I believe I’m at the right place and at the right team,’ Mhlongo told his club’s official website.
‘Apart from not playing, the way the team welcomed me was very important. And it made me have a sense of belonging, because I was at Pirates my entire career basically, so moving to Chippa and coming back to Joburg to join Wits, who were the rivals, I expected it to be hard to fit in at Wits but it’s been smooth sailing apart from the playing part.’
