AmaZulu boss wants more from Gabadinho


South Africa DStv Premiership side AmaZulu FC expects Malawi National Football Team striker Gabadinho Mhango to improve his performance when action returns after the World Cup break.

Mhango was in AmaZulu’s starting line-up for the MTN8 Cup final against Orlando Pirates at Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday which Usuthu lost 1-0.

The former Orlando Pirates striker is reported to have produced a below-par performance against his former team and was substituted at the hour mark.


AmaZulu coach Romain Folz said Mhango should have done better in the final.

“He can do much better than he did tonight. I don’t think it was a matter of them knowing how to contain him or to deal with him. I think our overall offensive is not dynamic enough.

“There are a lot of factors that explain why. There are other points which I will keep private on where to work on with him, especially [during] the break,” quoted Folz as saying.


The coach said he expected Mhango to be a better striker when action resumes after the global showpiece in Qatar.

“I’m expecting him to develop himself in those departments which again remain private and come back to help us much more when the league resumes. There are a lot of things that I need to work on during the break where we will start from scratch.

“As much as our run in the league game is satisfying since I arrived we are disappointed we could not get the win. Gaba should have done better but he is not the only one. There are other players who could have done better,” the online publication quoted Folz as telling the South African media.

Despite struggling on Saturday, Mhango remains AmaZulu’s top goal scorer in all competitions with five goals.

The Durban-based side qualified for the final on the away goals rule courtesy of the goal that Mhango netted against giants Kaizer Chiefs in a 1-1 stalemate.
