Being rejected, segregated by Orlando Pirates couldn’t impede Former Nyasa Big Bullets lethal forward, Gabadinho Mhango from shining for his National team.
Mhango is a rejected man by Orlando Pirates through their Co-coaches Ncikazi Mandla and fired Davids.
Despite lacking game time at Orlando, Mhango came to Malawi to torn apart Ethiopia at Bingu National Stadium.
His manager, Mario Marian Marinica knew that he could deliver even he lacked game time at Orlando.
Marinica responded when asked about picking inactive player,”We believe that he will perform as it was a case when we were going to Cameroon.”
Mhango scored twice in a game that Flames grilled the Walyas in their opening game in their effort to secure the first-ever back-to-back Afcon appearance.
His combination with Silver Strikers’ lethal forward, Stain Davie was deadly as it yielded two penalties. They were pressurising the defenders, Debebe, Yusef, Baley in the game.
Gabadinho told media on his performance at Flames that the support he receives from 17 millions Malawian energises him to die for them in the game.
Almost 42 thousands supporters who watches the game at Bingu and those watching from the glass cheered at him when he entered into the pitch for warm-ups before game.
Captain John CJ Banda told media on Saturday that players were ready to support Gaba to show Pirates that they have lost the gold.
“We are ready to support Gabadinho tomorrow (Sunday), we want him to show the World that he is the best,” said Banda.
Indeed, the entire team and the house supported Gabadinho, cheering at him for every touch in the game.
Mhango could have registered hat-trick in the game when he ridiculously headed home Madinga’s free kick in the 77th of the game, only to be ruled out for offside by the first assistant referee.
The brace takes his tally to 6 from his 5 last appearances for the Flames.
Frank Hellings Gabadinho Mhango is one of the best Strikers that Cosafa has right now.
His goals aside, even his touch, control and ability to read, lead the game is something special. He stretches the defence, and he has all what it takes to be called a complete player.
The man went into the game with three reasons. He targeted goals for his team to qualify, he wanted to impress his new Club that they have gotten what they needed and the last reason was to remind Orlando Pirates’ Ncikazi Mandla that Mhango is the best Player in the Cosafa region and even in the Premier Soccer League.
Amazulu have a gold in their hands, take care of him.
Form is temporary, but Class is permanent.
