Former Big Bullets and Flames’ talisman Gabadinho Mhango who scored four goals in Golden Arrows’ 4-2 win over Mpumalanga Black Aces in a remarkable Absa Premiership match at the Mbombela Stadium on Wednesday afternoon has hinted that wants the team to finish in top eight.
Aces led 2-0 in the 40th minute of the match after goals from Collins Mbesuma and Judas Moseamedi.
But Mhango, who came on as a substitute in the 36th minute, scored two goals before halftime, and another two in the second half to complete his team’s amazing comeback.
The win also lifted Arrows to 33 points on the standings, which is normally the benchmark PSL teams strive for to avoid relegation to the National First Division.
But the Durban outfit can now also fight for a spot in the top eight, as they are just one point behind the eighth-placed Super Sport United.
Speaking to South Africa’s online outlet, Sport24, Mhango said wants to help the team finish in the top eight and is geared to score more goals.
“I watched from the bench and I read the game and their defenders were making mistakes,” the 23-year-old told Sport24. “I saw before I came in and I just took my chances.
“Credit to my teammates because they are the ones who created for me and I took the opportunities and we scored. I needed to score before I go [to Wits] and I want the team to finish in the top eight,” he said.
Mhango signed a pre-contract agreement with Bidvest Wits and is expected to join the Students on July 1.
