Mhango vows to maintain form


PSL leading scorer Gabadinho Mhango says he is trying all he can to stay in shape so that he should not lose momentum when the season resumes.

In an exclusive interview with FARPost, Mhango said he has a target to fight for his club Orlando Pirates when the season resumes.

The Malawian leads the Golden Boot chase with 14 goals.

“It has been a long time that we have [not had] game time but for me actually it is something I will never lose my mind because it is only football that keeps me busy all the time, so even if I don’t have time to play football on the field of play when I get back to the pitch, the performance will be the same because I have a target to fight [for],” Mhango told FARPost.

He said Orlando Pirates coaching team has given players a routine of training they ought to follow from home during the lockdown.

“It is time of the lockdown… it is a tough time, not easy but all the same we keep ourselves fit on the ground. There is a group schedule that we do training from home and we all follow the training sessions and it is how we train in this time of lockdown and it is how we keep ourselves fit,” Mhango said.

Mhango signed for Pirates last year from Bidvest Wits. His first club in South Africa was Bloemfontein Celtic and also had a loan spell at Golden Arrows.

For country, Mhango is also the main frontman for the Flames who are still in contention for a place at the 2022 Fifa World Cup and 2021 Africa Cup of Nations finals scheduled for Qatar and Cameroon respectively.

However, all football activities have been suspended in all but three countries of the world due to Covid-19.

The pandemic has claimed lives of three people in Malawi which has registered 33 cases.
