Reason Why Mahlambi’s Move Could Be In Jeopardy

Why Mahlambi’s Move Could Be In Jeopardy

SuperSport United is now evaluating Phakamani Mahlambi, but the Siya team has been advised that a move for the former South African youth international could be in risk.

Following numerous loan stints with AmaZulu and Chippa United, Mahlambi was released from his contract with Mamelodi Sundowns and is now attempting to rebuild his career.

Gavin Hunt, who gave him his debut while he was still a young youngster on the roster of Bidvest Wits, is the former coach he has turned to.

Siya sources have now warned the team that there might be a snag in the works about a potential transfer while Hunt considers whether to hand 'Phaka' a lifeline.

It is understandable that he arrived at the club significantly obese because he has not participated in a game for more than a year," the source told the crew.

The source continued, The weight increase was also a result of an ailment he was carrying.

Mahlambi's final match in the top flight was a 2-1 loss to Stellenbosch in September 2021 when he entered as a second-half substitute. The 24-year-old was then sidelined for the remainder of the season with an Achilles tendon injury.

Hunt has already signed Ricardo Goss and Thulani Hlatshwayo, two of his former players, so it is unclear whether the 58-year-old will take a chance on the talented Mahlambi.
