Cape Town – Swedish side, IFK Goteborg, has made it clear that they want May Mahlangu in their ranks on a permanent basis.
The former Helsingborgs IF and IFK Hassleholm midfielder has been putting in splendid performances for Goteborg and the club are eager to reward him with a contract in order for the player to continue his fine form with the 18 time Allsvenskan (league) champions.
Kickoff reported Goteborg’s Sporting Director, Mats Gren, will sit down with Mahlangu’s agent, Rob Moore about extending his contract.
“We would obviously like to extend May’s contract, but I cannot speak to him about it all the time. May’s agent [Rob Moore] will arrive from Spain in two weeks and then we will sit down and discuss,” Gren said after the Secunda born player put another excellent performance in a 3-1 victory over Mjallby.
Mahlangu is a product of Stars of Africa Academy before making the switch to Swedish side Helsingborgs at the tender age of 19 and helped them secure the league in 2011 which he also won the Player of the Year award.
The 25-year-old recently recovered from an Achilles injury and is pushing to stay abroad although any of the big teams in the PSL will snatch him up quickly if he were to return to South Africa.
