Big Bullets sensational striker Gabadinho Mhango is on trials at South African Premier Soccer League (PSL) outfit AmaZulu.
The 20-year-old red-hot forward flew to Durban Wednesday afternoon after trials have been jointly arranged by Prosport International, a South African-based firm which manages the player and Bullets’ ambassador in South Africa, Patrick Mabedi.
According to Bullets general secretary Higger Mkandawire, AmaZulu have asked Prosport International to assess the player for slightly over a month and Gabadinho is expected to return home on July 31.
Gabadinho promises to “work extra hard to impress the technical staff.”
If AmaZulu signs him, they are expected to commit to ensure the player finishes his studies.
SuperSport journalist in Malawi, Peter Kanjere described Gabadinho as “good with both legs, he has the big match temperament, he has agility, balance, pace and power.”
Kanjere said Gabadinho “can dribble and head as if it is the easiest thing to do. Of course, scoring is his business. Nobody in Malawi understands how he became this good.”
He was plucked from his village team in 2010 by Brave Warriors and played for them for a season in the second-tier Premier Division before earning a low-key move to Bullets.
