Malawi national football team could miss the service of wonderkid Gabadinho Mhango who has opted to concentrate on his trials at South Africa’s Amazulu FC.
The move follows his local club Bullets FC advice to the diminutive striker to miss Confederation of Southern Africa Football Association (Cosafa) Cup scheduled for July 6-21 in Zambia.
Bullets General Secretary Higger Mkandawire said the club had advised Mhango not to feature for the Cosafa Cup which will be hosted by Zambia from July 6 to 21.
Mkandawire said the decision was also approved by his parents despite that the player is in Flames coach Eddington Ng’onamo’s plans.
Mhango has already won the hearts of from South Africa media just a week into his trials.
A report from Soccer Laduma stated that the player has done well in pre-season games he has featured for Amazulu as he aims at impressing coach Craig Rosslee.
“He is still young and if you look at the way he plays then you can see that he has a great future. I am not sure whether he will be signing or not, but he is looking good,” Soccer Laduma quoted a source.
Gabadinho scored two goals for Amazulu in a game the team won 3-1 against Durban on Saturday.
Fam General Secretary Suzgo Nyirenda is also doubtful that the players would be available for July 6 games with the players having started camping on Monday at Chiwembe Technical Development Centre.
The trails are being facilitated by former Flames captain Patrick Mabedi, who is now assistant coach for the Malawi national team.
