With his deal expiring at the end of the current campaign, a source in the Orlando Pirates camp has revealed that Gabadinho Mhango’s contract is unlikely to be extended following the striker’s recent string of bad publicity, something which is said to have angered a lot of people at the club.

The insider says Mhango’s ‘most annoying and boring’ attitude has angered many at the Soweto outfit, including his teammates who’ve been involved in a few altercations with him already.

“Mei bro (my brother), you know Gaba, you know him very well and how he behaves. No one can tell him anything and he has this huge ego.

“No one can stand in front of him, but what I know is that his attitude has made a lot of people angry. I don’t think the management will extend his contract because it’s ending next year. Gaba is just doing his things and he doesn’t care. Maybe it’s the money, football is no longer his happiness.

“He is doing bad stuff, he is going to realize later because he doesn’t want to listen to anyone. I hope someone talks to him and they let him know that he is not as big as he thinks he is. Anyway, I don’t see his contact being renewed,’ said the source.

The Malawian international joined the Buccaneers two seasons ago from the now defunct Bidvest Wits and wasted no time in setting the scene alight as he finished his first season in Soweto as the league’s joint top scorer with 16 goals, alongside Peter Shalulile.
