Kuda Mahachi’s comparison of the PSL and Ghana’s Premiership

After finally making his debut for Medeama SC, speedy forward Kuda Mahachi has revealed the difference between the PSL and the Ghanaian Premier league.

Kuda Mahachi joined the Ghanaian Premier league side Medeama SC in August.

That was after a frustrating spell on the sidelines, since his contract was terminated by DStv Premiership side, SuperSport United back in June 2022.

He made his debut in Sunday’s 2-0 win over Legon Cities and is in line for selection when they host Nsoatreman FC on Thursday.


And as he adapts in West Africa, the ex-Orlando Pirates man has revealed the difference between the DStv Premiership and Ghanaian football.

“Ghana Premier League is so physical than in South Africa but I’m happy to come and play in Ghana. So that I can gain another experience and also bring the experience that I have to the team,” said Mahachi.

“First, I would like to thank the coaches for believing in me. It’s been a tough time for me.

“When I came here, my fitness was low, everything was down. And I started talking to the coaches who kept encouraging me to keep pushing.

“So, for now I’m picking up and I am happy I got 10 minutes last weekend. For me, I am happy because the Ghanaian people are so nice and so loving.

“Still haunt by his ordeal, Mahachi has refused to be thrust under pressure in the bid to reinvent himself.

“For me, I don’t want to put myself under pressure. I’m playing for a big team. I’m playing for the champions.

“It’s up to me to work hard so that coaches will see that I’m ready. The team is doing well as you can see.

“Tomorrow [Thursday] we play a big game so that we catch up at the top. I don’t put myself under pressure.

“I take each day as it comes since I am returning from an injury. And I know expectations are high but for me I don’t have any pressure,” he added.


Mahachi is first to admit that he is still behind the expected level of fitness for him to command a first team jersey.

“Just like coach said, my fitness was low but I’m training everyday so I would like to thank the coaches for pushing me.

“I’ve said it, as a foreigner, you need to deliver so I am not putting myself under pressure.

“I believe my team can do anything we want to do because we’re winning games. Our mentality is to maintain our league title,” he said.
