Malawi striker Frank ‘Gabadinho’ Mhango, who steered Bloemfontein Celtic to a 5-0 crushing of Mamelodi Sundowns on Thursday played down his recent goal drought .
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.
