Gaba: Scores

The Malawian is slowly getting back to form following the return of head coach Clinton Larsen.

The 22-year-old scored a brace on Wednesday as Celtic thrashed defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns 5-0 in the PSL.

“I have been affected by injuries and some of my team mates have been playing nice, so you can’t expect to be starting every game. Everyone was expecting me to do the same thing that I did last season, but football is not like that,” Mhango told KickOff.

“There was nothing wrong [during Ernst Middendorp’s time]. He is a good coach and he can motivate. He can tell you what is the problem so you can improve. It is football and I accepted that,” he says.

He has scored four goals in this campaign.

The win has taken Celtic to fifth position in the PSL with 37 points from 25 games in the 16-team league.

In a related developmen his slump in form forced Malawi national football team coach Young Chimodzi to sideline him for the Tanzania friendly game last month in which they drew one-all.

    Gaba’s problem was that he said he will score 15 or more goals this season. That is when the season started as a result he put so much pressure on himself. Every ball that he got, he wanted to shoot from whichever position. He was not a team player that’s why he was benched then later put on stands. Now that he knows he cant achieve that goal, he is playing better with no pressure.

    My only advise is that he doesn’t get too excited and respond to the call of the big 3 who buy to destroy: Sundowns, Pirates and Chiefs.
