Cape Town - Bidvest Wits forward Gabadinho Mhango travelled to Malawi in search of a young fan, who has been donning a shirt with his name on it.
However, the shirt worn by the boy is no ordinary Wits jumper.
From a village in Malawi called Ntcheu, the young boy nicknamed "Gabadinho" had Mhango's name written in black marker at the back of his shirt.
A picture was taken of the boy with his shirt and made it's way to Mhango and went viral on social media. Mhango took to his official Instagram account to explain the story further
"Well, if you don't here is the story. A few weeks ago I saw a picture of a young Malawian kid with a t-shirt written my name on the back with black marker and everyone in his village in Ntcheu calls him Gabadinho," the forward wrote on his Instagram.
"I so wanted to meet this hero of mine that I asked for the whereabouts of this Young Gabadinho. People helped me get to him and by last week, we had found our Young Gaba.
"Had free slots this weekend and I said this is it! Came to Malawi as soon as possible and made arrangements to meet Young Gabadinho. I am inspired by his gesture, I play football for people like him.
"I hope I live to make him proud so he makes his family and country proud. I had so much fun today meeting up Gabadinho whoop!guys!!!
"Thank You all for the efforts you put up to make sure we find our Gabadinho. Mission accomplished, I can leave and get back to work now...!!"
Meanwhile, Mhango has been in scintillating form for the Clever Boys as the look to snatch the Premiership title from Mamelodi Sundowns.
Wits are currently first on the log with 16 points and have two games in hand.
