Mahlambi Set For Portuguese Trial After PSL Win

Bidvest Wits’ exciting young attacker, Phakamani Mahlambi, will jet out to Europe shortly to begin a three-week trial with a club in Portugal.
 
 
The 19-year-old scooped up the Young Player of the Season gong last night at the PSL Awards in Johannesburg after an impressive showing in the second half of the Absa Premiership season, scoring six goals in 13 games for the Clever Boys as they went on to win the title.
 
Now, according to his head coach, Gavin Hunt, the teenager could be set for the next step in his career as he looks to follow in the footsteps of Bongani Zungu and Liam Jordan by heading to Portugal.
 
Hunt told the media last night, “He’s going overseas this week to Portugal. They’ll have a look at him there and let him train for about three weeks, which is good. It’s before the start of the season but hopefully, please God, he makes it.” 
 
 
While there has been no confirmation of the club that Mahlambi will be going to, Hunt did mention the names of Vitoria de Guimaraes and Sporting Clube de Portugal, two clubs who have already had South African players on their books.
 
The Siya crew spoke to Glyn Binkin, Mahlambi’s agent, however, he was unable to divulge and information on the matter, simply stating that he was currently in Europe working on some options for a number of his clients.
