Cape Town - Former Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates winger Jabu Mahlangu looks set for a Premier Soccer League return in the colours of Pretoria-based outfit, SuperSport United.

According to the Soccer-Laduma website, United head coach, Cavin Johnson, is willing to give the retired ‘trouble-maker’ another stint in the country’s top flight.

Mahlangu, 33, made his PSL debut in the colours of Chiefs back in 1999 and was often in trouble for his behaviour. The club initially turned a blind eye on the matter until they decided enough was enough in 2004.

“Shuffle the Park” had previously played for Matsatsantsa under Pitso Mosimane in the 2005/2006 season but was shown the door due to his lack of discipline midway through the season.

As an outcome, Mahlangu joined the Buccaneers in January 2006 under the reign of Kostadin Papic.

Mahlangu played an influential role in helping Pirates reach the 2006 CAF Champions League semi-finals where they lost 1-0 on aggregate to CS Sfaxien of Tunisia.

Mahlangu earned 20 international caps for Bafana Bafana and was part of the 2002 FIFA World Cup squad in South Korea and Japan.

The former Platinum Stars man was also part of Shakes Mashaba’s national Under-23 team that gave Brazil a 3-1 thumping during the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games in Australia.

The Daveyton-born player is undergoing intensive training to regain his fitness at United.
