Vitesse head coach Henk Fraser has earmarked new signing Thulani Serero as player who can make a winning difference.
The South Africa international has joined Vitas to revitalise his career after being frozen out at Eredivisie rivals Ajax.
Fraser believes the 27-year-old playmaker is still a performer of great pedigree, telling Dutch publication Omroep Gelderland: "Serero is a controlling player and good in possession. He has the potential to make the game."
Serero is also optimistic of a change in fortunes, saying: "I also see myself as a leader. I understand that Fraser wants the play to go through me and I feel comfortable with that.
"But in the end‚ we have to play football as a team and win as a team. It's all about believing… believing that you can win.
"If you do step on the field‚ everyone has the same faith‚ not thinking‚ 'oh no‚ this is a great team‚ it is difficult to win here'. If we all have the same faith‚ anything is possible."
