Gaba’s time: named best for January

Gabadinho Mhango, Orlando Pirates

The impressive performance that saw Gabadinho Mhango score six goals including a hat-trick against Polokwane FC in the ABSA Premier Soccer League (PSL) in January, did not go unnoticed as he has been awarded the best player for that month.

Mhango is also the league’s current top-goal scorer with 14 goals to his name for his club, Orlando Pirates.

Interestingly, the Malawian has been named the best alongside his coach Josef Zinnbauer.

PSL confirmed the awards on Thursday.

Mhango steered Orlando to second position with 36 points from 20 games.

They are nine points behind leaders Kaizer Chiefs who have a game in hand.
