Sekhukhune United eyeing former Wits and Bucs star

β€œMhango is one of the guys who has been identified as someone who could come and help the team,” an insider told Citizen regarding the former Orlando Pirates and Wits star.

β€œHe is a very talented striker and someone who has a lot of experience playing in the DStv Premiership. If you look at him now, you can see that there is still a lot of hunger in him.

β€œIt’s not like the team doesn’t have players who can do the job, it is just that there also needs to be competition. This is because they feel like some players are relaxed because there is also no completion.

β€œIf you look at the squad, it’s a big squad, close to 40 players. But also some people are not competing. With so much investment in the team, there is therefore a need to strengthen it.” a source added regarding the former Bidvest Wits and Orlando Pirates star.
