Throwback Thursday

TBT: Mahoota Mashego - Inja Ye Game

He boasts one of the most glittering CVs in local football, having turned out for a host of top-flight clubs that include Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns. We throw it back to legendary striker Katlego ‘Mahoota’ Mashego.

It is an injustice that very little is spoken about the Bushbuckridge-born man, considering the illustrious career he has enjoyed.

Nine trophies- including five league titles, in a career that spanned over two decades, speaks volumes of Mashego’s contribution to the clubs he has played for.

The striker has been the journeyman of Mzansi football, having turned out for eight local top-flight clubs such as Hellenic, SuperSport United, Mamelodi Sundowns, Golden Arrows and Orlando Pirates.

Like Collins Mbesuma, Mashego boasts the impressive feat of having scored for every club he has played for, most notably when he picked up the top goalscorer award in the 2012/2013 season with 13 goals while he was still with Swallows.

The veteran striker has made more than 240 Premiership appearances - scoring 73 goals in the process. He also featured 22 times for his country, scoring on two occasions for the national team.

His last stint in the PSL came in 2018, where he called it a day while on the books of Chippa United.

What is your fondest memory of Mashego’s career?
