Former Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs youth player Mihlali Mayambela has just completed his loan spell with Bnei Yehuda Tel Aviv F.C. in Israel and will return to his parent club SC Farense in Portugal. There he will compete for a place in Coach Jorge Paixao's side. The team have just been promoted to the top flight of Portuguese football.
Speaking on SL Radio’s Players Abroad podcast, Mayambela revealed some of the struggles he’s experienced in the second half of the season, including his injury and missing home.
“The main focus is on the injury, I didn’t heal properly because of the Coronavirus, so now I’m trying my best to get the best treatment and get back to playing football.”
When asked if there was something his older brother Mark could send to him in Portugal, Mayambela spoke candidly about his family, stating, “Maybe if he could sneak in my son, so I could see him. My son and himself, that would do me good for the year.”
