Impressive Mahlambi Earns CAF Call
Phakamani Mahlambi Has Been Registered For The CAF Champions League By Al Ahly
Phakamani Mahlambi’s performances for Al Ahly have earned him a spot in their CAF Champions League squad, after they decided not to register him for the previous rounds.
Mahlambi has made 13 appearances for the Egyptian giants this season, since his big-money move from Bidvest Wits, and his head coach, Hossam El-Badri, has spoken of the promise that they see in the 20-year-old Bafana Bafana international.
Now, with Ahly having already wrapped up the league title, they have set their sights on getting off to a good start in the CCL group stages when they face Esperance this coming weekend.
Mahlambi came off the bench on Monday night as his side were beaten by Gift Links’ Alassiouty in the Egypt Cup, and he will be hoping to make more of an impact on Friday night after being registered by Ahly for the group stages of the competition.
It has been confirmed on the club’s official website that Mahlambi has been registered and is also in the squad that will do battle with the Tunisians on Friday evening.
The former Wits speedster has five assists and one goal to his name in Egypt and will be eager to make his CCL group stage debut later this week.
