Gabadinho delights in MTN8 grory


Malawi export Gabadinho Mhango is delighted at helping his South African Premier Soccer League (PSL) side Bidvest Wits win the MTN8 Tournament.

The Clever Boys thumped Mamelodi Sundown 3-0 in Nelspruit on Saturday to win the tournament that goes with R8 million (about K406 million).

Gabadinho was a constant threat for Sundowns until he was substituted in 69th minute.

He also came close to scoring in the first half.

“Obviously, I am very excited, this achievement means a lot to me.

“It is my first time to win a cup here and it has also taken Wits a long time to win a silverware [six years]. So, I guess I have all the reason to be happy,” he said.

“I am very proud to have played a big part in this success. We reduced Sundowns to an ordinary side due to team spirit.”

Daine Klate scored on either side of a goal from Rodgers as Gavin Hunt’s men easily disposed of a Sundowns side who only really got out of the blocks in the second stanza.

Wits coach Gavin Hunt was visibly thrilled to have seen his Bidvest Wits side claim a first trophy in six years and spoke of building on their MTN8 success.

He praised his team for achieving such a tremendous feat against quality opponents.
