New Orlando Pirates midfielder Yasser Mugerwa says he is settling in well at the club and believes they have what it takes to go all the way in the CAF Confederation Cup.

The Ugandan playmaker signed a three-year contract with the Buccaneers on Monday after joining from Uganda Revenue Authority, who Pirates played in the continental competition earlier this year.

"Look I know from personal experience that Pirates is a huge challenge and that is why I honestly feel the team is a favourite to win the Confederation Cup," Mugerwa told the club's website.

"I had the opportunity to play against them earlier this year when I was with URA of Uganda."

The 21-year-old revealed coach Eric Tinkler has already sat down with him and detailed the expectations that come with being an Orlando Pirates player.

"The coach has sat down with me and told me his expectations and those of the club. He spoke to me about overcoming my weaknesses, such as not being shy and taking more shots in front of goal.

"I have also been blessed to have players who understand the culture of the club and have taken the time to sit down and give me guidance on what I need to do in order to be success at the club.

"Guys like Lekgwathi, Sarr and Majoro have been most helpful in getting me up to speed with how things work around here," he concluded.
