“But I’m not going to put myself under pressure because I got into a team which got good coaches, good management and good players.
“I’m just excited to join a home team from Eastern Cape and I want to thank the chairman for believing in me. He told me that this is my chance, and I want to pay him by delivering for the club," said the star born in Ngqeleni near Mthatha.
“I have to help the team going forward, possibly survive relegation.”
Nomandela could make his debut when Chippa welcome his former team Sundowns in the DStv Premiership match at Sisa Dukashe Stadium on Monday.
“We got a fixture on Monday against Sundowns who are doing well, but we are desperate for three points and win every game that comes our way,” he said.
“The preparations have been going alright as we have a new coach, and the spirit in the camp is marvelous. Everyone is excited, feeling fresh, and the energy is up there.”
Chippa axed their previous coach Dan Malesela at the weekend.
Meanwhile, Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila have officially announced the signing of former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder George Lebese.
Lebese joins on a short deal until the end of the season from American side Switchbacks where he was forced to terminate his contract due to Covid-19 travel restrictions.
