Gaba in dream return

After serving a six-game ban, Flames forward, Gabadinho Mhango, made a dream return to Bidvest Wits as the Clever Boys defeated Bloemfontein Celtic 1-0 to lift South Africa’s Telkom Knockout trophy on Saturday night.
Gaba was deservedly named man-of-the-match following his superb displays during the game.
It was an emotional return for the former Big Bullets forward who only completed his ban for spitting at Amazulu’s Michael Morton in September a week ago.
In an interview with Supersport.com after the game, Gaba said it felt great to return to the pitch after enduring a period of inactivity.
He expressed hope that the cup success would help his team put its Absa Premier Soccer League title campaign back on track.
“First of all, I want to thank God and my teammates. I was suspended for six games and for me to come back and be voted Man of the Match, it is no mean achievement. I couldn’t have done it without the help of my teammates.
“As players, we enjoy winning trophies. Hopefully, this cup will give us the confidence to put our league title fight back on track. But, surely, this win will motivate us to continue fighting,” the 25-year-old said.
Wits Head Coach, Gavin Hunt, did not directly comment on Gaba’s performance but praised the team’s ‘magnificent’ defence for weathering down Celtic’s attacks.
Vincent Pule struck in the 90th minute to hand Wits the trophy courtesy of a 1-0 win.
