This is surely something that the club won't appreciate as one of the biggest brand in South African football. Professional has also been put into question on South African football and this is not a good look.
Ball Game SA shared a clip taken by Siphesihle Ndlovu as he captured Gabadinho Mhango while asking him how he is doing. The can be seen in low spirits as he responded by claiming that he is not okay and this could be related to his recent scandal. The star was said to have been detained after failing to settle a bill at a nightclub in Pretoria.
