Mhango returns from injury


Orlando Pirates have confirmed the return of their goal poacher Gabadinho Mhango.

He had suffered a groin strain in a warm-up before their DStv Premiership encounter against Stellenbosch FC on 28 October 2020 at Orlando Stadium.

“The Bucs technical team has been boosted with the latest news to come out of the medical department. Josef Zinnbauer and his brains trust welcome back 2019/20 top goalscorer Gabadinho Mhango who returns to full training after recovering from injury,” Pirates stated in a statement.

“The return of the Malawian international comes in at the right time and will surely give Zinnbauer a welcome selection headache upfront in the upcoming matches with the likes of Zakele Lepasa and Tshegofatso Mabasa firing on all cylinders. Both strikers were on the scoresheet in Orlando Pirates’ come-from-behind victory over SuperSport United at the weekend.

The club also added that Thembinkosi Lorch continues to undergo rehabilitation with the physiotherapists after his successful surgery on his knee.

The 27-year-old suffered a setback in their DStv Premiership clash against Bloemfontein Celtic on the 4th of November at Dr. Petrus Molemela Stadium.
