Soccer-Laduma's website reports, the 24-year-old midfielder’s future has been up in the air for a
long-time ever since he left Helsingborg in December, and despite talk
of a move to South Africa, the player remained adamant that he wanted to
remain in Europe.
However, with the player in the process of recovering from a long-term
Achilles injury, it became difficult for him to secure the short-term
contract that he wanted, something that seems to have been offered to
him by Blavitt.
Goteborg, the most successful Swedish club in Allvenskan history with
18 titles, are believed to have offered Mahlangu the chance to regain
his fitness and form and will then allow him to leave for a bigger club
should the opportunity arise in the near future.
It was Swedish publication, Aftonbladet, that first reported
the news of Mahlangu’s shock move to Goteborg, although they were not
sure of the exact length of his imminent contract with the club.
