“I want to say thanks to the management and the team for bringing me here. What attracted me to come to Stellenbosch is that, firstly, before I joined the team I looked at the facilities, they were amazing,” Moon told reporters on Friday.

“I looked at the technical staff, a great coach in coach Steve and for me, it’s always good to be in an environment where you feel wanted, you feel you can improve as a player.”

Moon added that he was happy with the welcome he got from his new teammates.

“I’ve been here for a week and it feels like I’ve been here for years. That’s because of the coaches and the players, they make you want to look forward to coming to training on the next day.

“That’s very important as a player because it’s your job and I just want to play and enjoy my football. I think with this team, especially coming up, they have a lot of big plans as a club, it’s exciting to be part of.

“Everybody wants to learn here, the players and the technical wants to learn, it’s been really great so far and I’m really looking forward to the season,” concluded Moon.
