Malawi National Football Team striker, Gabadinho Mhango is flown into ditch of praises after he made his side defeat Kaizer Chiefs in the 2016 South Africa Absa Premier Soccer League season which kicked off on Tuesday night.
Mhango, who was voted man of-the match on his threshold touch for Bidvest Wits as they defeated Kaizer Chiefs 2-1 in Johannesburg.
Wits coach Gavin Hunt was pleased with Mhango who he played on the left wing.
“I played Mhango wide today— it’s not his position but I knew that is where the space was for us,” Hunt disclosed in a post-match interview.
“In the first half, he kept drifting in and I said to him: ‘stay wide, stay wide, you will get the ball and we can hurt them there. That right fullback gets really high and the space is there game in and game out.”
The Flames striker created the opener for Elias Pelembe before Thulani Hlatswayo added the second. Gordinho scored the consolation for Chiefs.
“I thank my team mates for their support. They keep pushing me to work hard in training. This is the start I wanted,” Mhango told the television station.
The former Nyasa Big Bullets striker joined Wits from Golden Arrows where he was on loan after leaving Bloemfontein Celtic last season.
