Kaizer Chiefs midfielder William Twala feels his career remains in the right direction despite having endured a difficult start to his time at Naturena with the club struggling for positive results.
Twala has been involved in every domestic match that Chiefs have played since he arrived in mid-January from Chippa United, starting seven games and coming on as a substitute in another six, but has found the club enduring a slump that has left them without a win in eight games.
“In as far as my goals and dreams are concerned I think I am going in the right direction,” says Twala.
Though he has faced the agony of seeing his new club being knocked out of Nedbank Cup, CAF Champions League and letting go of the League title in the three months he has spent at the club, he remains in good spirits.
“It has been a very happy journey so far … it is a pity the results have not been forthcoming, but I feel comfortable and at home already. It is a big family to be around and everyone is doing their bit to make me feel as comfortable as possible. It is unfortunate that we cannot predict such things (results), but I am really happy to be here and hopefully things will get better as time goes on,” he says.

Having previously played for Orlando Pirates, the 26 year-old believes that spell with The Bucs was vital in shaping him into the player that he has grown into.
“Coming from a big club previously I had to adjust myself seeing that I was coming to a big club again,” he says. “So I was ready mentally and I didn’t necessarily have to take that much time to prepare myself. I said to myself, ‘I am going to do this because the second time is always the best’.
“So far I am happy with my contribution and offer myself to any kind of situation that the coach will want me to apply to. Seeing that I now have years under my belt in the professional set-up, this time I am very much aware, very positive and looking forward to taking things in my stride."
Chiefs will be hoping to bring their recent struggles to an end when they face University of Pretoria in their next game on 27 April.
