Mahlambi’s troubles off the pitch are well-documented as he fell out of favour at Downs and was loaned out to AmaZulu, where head coach Benni McCarthy froze him out and described him as a player who takes his job for granted.

His career looked to be on the rise again when he reunited with Gavin Hunt and the Chilli Boys as it was the veteran mentor who introduced him to top-flight football at the now defunct Bidvest Wits. Phakaaathi has been told that the former Al-Ahly player is back to his old ways and Hunt is allegedly unhappy and might release him from his team.
