Cape Town - Gabadinhi Mhango has spoken out about his unhappiness at the treatment he received from Bloemfontein Celtic while injured.

It was confirmed earlier this week that the Celtic striker has signed a pre-contract for June with Bidvest Wits, a move which angered the Celtic management, who claimed that Mhango had gone behind their backs.

The Malawi international has now revealed that he feels the Free State club mistreated him while injured, and also says that Phunya Sele Sele failed to engage with him on contract talks, his current deal set too end in June this year.

"I was committed to Celtic but there were a lot of things which have been happening. For example the team had no regard for my welfare as they reduced my salary during the time of my injury," Mhango was quoted as saying on Football411.

"I was also frustrated to see that they were dilly-dallying to come in the open to indicate whether they will offer me a contract or not," he added.
