May Mahlangu’s new club, Torku Konyaspor, will face giants, Galatasaray, in the Last 16 of the Turkish Cup later on this week.
The South African midfielder made his debut for Konyaspor last week, coming on as a substitute as they booked their place in the next round of the cup. Mahlangu also made his league debut at the weekend, also as a substitute, as his side won 1-0 to move up to 10th in the league.
Now, as the 25-year-old pushes for his first start for his new club, they have been drawn against Galatasaray in Turkey’s biggest domestic cup competition.
Mahlangu, who has been linked with Gala in the past, will be keen to put on a performance in the capital and help his side make it through to the quarterfinals.
Mahlangu is being tipped to start on Thursday night, however that decision will lie with his head coach, Aykut Kocaman.
