The winger said Gebhardt, who has been captaining the side for the past few games, made his arrival at the club a smooth-sailing experience as he [Gebhardt] explained the club’s culture to him and made extra sure that he was in tune with all the dynamics at Baroka.

“Ananias being here has helped me a lot as well, because he took time to explain a lot of things about the club and its culture. That has really helped me settle in well.

“Playing for Baroka is a big opportunity for me personally because it’s every player’s dream to play in the DStv Premiership and that’s the goal here in South Africa. So, I’m very grateful for the opportunity Baroka has given me,” he concluded.
