Mahlangu: Why I Couldn’t Play In The EPL

South African midfielder, May Mahlangu, who recently explained his failed move to Spanish La Liga side, Elche, in an interview with Soccer Laduma, has revealed why his move to England in the recent transfer window could not materialise.

Mahlangu: I Chose Bafana Over Sweden

Mahlangu, who recently moved to Turkish Super Lig side, Konyaspor, said that because he didn’t play in 75% of Bafana’s games in the last two years, he wouldn’t have been granted a work permit.

However, Mahlangu did admit that under former manager Gordon Igesund, he would have qualified for a work permit in England.

“Unfortunately that became impossible after I was left out of the first two Bafana squads that Shakes named,” He told the Siya Crew.

“If I had transferred to England in August, I would have qualified automatically for a work permit, because under Gordon I had played the correct number of matches.

“As you know, in England to get a work permit you must play in 75 percent of the FIFA A matches for your country in the previous two years.”

What Happened To Mahlangu’s La Liga Move

Mahlangu made 13 appearances for Bafana, before he was banned from national duty. He has two Bafana Bafana goals to his name, and assisted one.
