Mahlambi became the first South African to play in the Egyptian Premier League after agreeing a four-year-deal with Al Ahly last week.

In a congratulatory video Henry tells ‘Phakamani’ to keep working hard and to keep his head up.

“Thanks legend Thierry Henry,” read Mahlambi’s caption on the twitter video.
