He told iDiski Times senior Writer Velile Mnyandu in edition 106 of the newspaper about a chat with former Orlando Pirates defender Hlatswayo, who gave him some advice on what to expect when joining a big team.
“The talk was all about the challenge, the pressure, the expectations, which are coming in the journey that I’m about to embark on in a few months,” Ditlhokwe told SSNEWS.
“So you see Tyson has captained Bafana Bafana, he has played at Wits and captained Wits. So he knows he has been there.
“He knows what is expected. He knows the challenges which will come so it was a privilege to have someone like him this season, so that I can learn from him what is expected and what comes with the so-called big teams.”
