Malawian striker Gabadinho Mhango’s professional football career has been redefined after being offered his work permit.
Gaba, as is fondly called, is set to make his Premier Soccer League debut for South Africa’s top league side Bloemfontein Celtic against Morokwa Swallows on October 22.
Kick Off online reported on Tuesday that all the bottlenecks which delayed the player to star for the Phunya Selesele were cleared.
“Malawian international Hellings Gabadinho Mhango is now ready to start playing for Bloemfontein Celtic after being handed his work permit,” states the report.
The report quoted Celtic Chief Executive Officer Khumbulani Konco as saying Mhango could come into contention for the next league match against Patrick Mabedi’s side Morokwa Swarrows on October 22.
“Everything regarding his papers has been sorted and he is now available for selection,” Konco said.
The development has also put to rest speculation that Gabadinho could see his deal fell through after controversy surrounding age cheating when it was reported that his passport was doctored to indicated that he is 16-years-old instead.
His official age is however 21 years as he was born on 27 September 1992 but it was doctored to prolong his career.
The development comes barely two days after starring for the team against heavyweights Kaizer Chiefs in the Macufe Cup 1-0 victory.
In a related development the player has been welcomed by Celtic fans.
“This chap is very good. I like his moment off the ball and on the ball,” states one fans.
“Good news Celtic will soon compete. Be better than Mbesuma of long ago! Good lucky,” says
