Gabadinho Mhango’s utmost promise to Usuthu

Malawian international Gabadinho Mhango has responded to doubters about his off-the-field lifestyle after his move from Orlando Pirates to AmaZulu. 

The Flames forward has had some off-field challenges, making some doubt his ability as a footballer. Those struggles might have contributed to his lack of game time at the Buccaneers.

Surprisingly, the 29-year-old was buzzing, scoring crucial goals whenever he pulled on the national team shirt and which created confusion and questions. 

Speaking to FARPost as he was officially unveiled to the media and Usuthu sponsors, the attacker said being part of the Durban outfit was exciting. He added that a good environment would help him prove his doubters wrong. 

“It is very important to be part of the AmaZulu brand. I’m excited and ready to reward the management for believing in me. We are all ready to deliver for the team,” he said. 

“I’m always excited to deliver in an environment where I’m given freedom, I play with excitement, being judged is part of life, people will always misunderstand you, for you as a player is to deliver.”

“In life, there are always challenges, but I’m here to deliver and not focus on negative thoughts, not to disappoint those who trust me.”

Malawi coach Mario Marinica will be relieved, seeing his talisman potentially get regular action for his club. The former Bloemfontein Celtic and Bidvest Wits striker was the joint top scorer with Peter Shalulile during the 2019/20 season after scoring 16 goals for Bucs under Jozef Zinnbauer. 

After that season, things were never the same, as he struggled to get game time at the Soweto giants. He scored just five goals in 22 games the following season.

Last term, it got worse as he only played 10 games in all competitions, a development that was a concern for his national team coach.
