Latest on Gabadinho Mhango’s move to Kaizer Chiefs

Kaizer Chiefs have moved a step closer to landing the signature of AmaZulu FC striker Gabadinho Mhango, here’s the latest update on the move.

FARPost reported in June that the future of the Malawian star would be determined in the upcoming weeks as the club was looking to offload him.

According to what this website gathered then, the club would only reconsider its position if the new coach Pablo Franco Martin decides to keep the 30-year-old.

Now, in what seems to be a surprising move, Kaizer Chiefs have jumped at the chance to bring Mhango to Naturena.


Mhango’s switch to Chiefs is as good as done as two clubs have agreed on terms of sale, sources close to the player have told FARPost. He was going to undergo his medical test at Chiefs headquarters on Friday.

However, this has been rescheduled due to the club’s trip to Botswana, where they will square off with Township Rollers in an international friendly. And he’s now likely to continue with medical next week when the club is back in Johannesburg.

Moreover, the unnamed Moroccan club has also been lining up to secure the services of the former Orlando Pirates man. However, the unknown North African outfit has been utilising the intermediary to identify the striker of Mhango’s calibre.

This has reduced their chances to acquire the signature of the Flames talisman as they haven’t been engaging with AmaZulu directly. It has then worked in favour of the Glamour Boys who have made their intentions clear about signing Mhango.

Chiefs have already wrapped up seven signings to reinforce their squad ahead of the 2023/24 season. They have signed Given Msimango, Mduduzi Mdantsane, Thatayaone Ditlhokwe, Ranga Chivaviro, Pule Mmodi, Edson Daniel Castillo Garcia and Tebogo Potsane.

Chiefs’ new head coach Molefi Ntseki insisted they are still looking to bolster their squad even more as the window will only close at the end of August.
