The Siya crew can reveal that Hellings' ‘Gabadinho’ Mhango will still not be available for selection when Bloemfontein Celtic take on Mamelodi Sundowns in the Telkom Knockout on Sunday.
Celtic snapped up the highly-rated Malawian striker during the recent transfer window but he has not yet featured for Clinton Larsen’s side after it emerged that there was confusion regarding his age.
His previous club, Big Bullets FC, were apparently refusing to issue his International Transfer Certificate because they claimed he was 16, but Celtic are adamant that they signed him with the knowledge that he is 20-years-old.
The club’s technical director, Mich D’Avray, told the crew, “We are still waiting for his work permit so he definitely won’t be available to play this weekend. We thought it would come through this week but it hasn’t so we are playing a waiting game at the moment.”
