Jabu Mahlangu completes FC Cape Town move

Posted: 22 February 2012 Time: 10:57

Former Bafana Bafana midfielder Jabu Mahlangu has finally signed with modest First Division club FC Cape Town after completing his three-week long fitness programme at the club.

Mahlangu has signed up to the end of the season, having undergone 21 days of training needed to reach minimum fitness that can enable him to play First Division football.

Officials at the club have confirmed that Mahlangu signed yesterday and is now due to move into the clubhouse soon having been driving to training from his cousin’s place all along.

Since arriving at the club, the concern about Mahlangu has been around his fitness as ‘playing wise’ he had already won the admiration of the coach Jozef Vukusic from the first day he kicked the ball at training.

Mahlangu had also been bothered by a slight groin injury, but is now fully recovered and could make his debut this afternoon against Dynamos if all his papers get through to the PSL in time.

The 31 year-old showed flashes of brilliance in the reserve league match against Ajax Cape Town while he also came on as a substitute in another friendly match against SuperSport United a fortnight ago.

Mahlangu last played for Swedish second tier league club Osters IF in November 2010 and has been without a club since then.

Meanwhile, the club has also confirmed that Cameroon midfielder Leandre Tawamba Kana is still waiting for the issuing of his work-permit.

aah with Jabu its a complete wste of time. Just like Sipho nunens, naughty, hartley, ntuka, skaapie, seuntjie, wayne roberts, cyril zuma.....these people are a waste of time. Only ace chabangu managed to claw his way back. I dont say they shouldnt be given a chance, all im saying is, signing jabu is just a waste of time.

thando: are u prepared to post your own mistakes here as well.

Stop being a black god, u have your own mistakes, Shuffle has never bothered you or any member of your family but u are on his case. At least he drinks his money, akabambi ibhantshi.

When are we going to learn to support people when they are down not when they are doing well.

@King
You always state that teams should give youngsters an opportunity, Jabu had his chance and he blew it away, So there is no reason for us to support him. He had an opportunity to play for two big teams in South Africa, Is that not enough considering his bad behavior he displayed during his time.

MZIMBA: In your workplace, would you agree when your boss suggest that u must make way for younger person at the age of 31 taking into consideration what the law prevails as far as age is concern.

United FC as an employer is happy with his services. In your club you would feel different.

I just dont want people behaving like gods as if they are perferct

i understand your question very well but you need to understand that we are talking football here. At the age 31 of he should be at the peak of his career.

Jabu, FC Cape Town gave you a life line here... Now get your nutz cracked on that field.... You have a family and age is not on your side. In all fairness you owe it to yourself to put your act together and work hard

Now this was one talented guy, remembr the 2000 ( speaking under correction)spectecular, all the way to when they beat Jomo in the Coca-cola cup final. Shuffle, Chippa Lekoelea, Scara,Tso Vilakazi, had a potential to make their mark in SA soccer, but discipline was their downfall. Shakes Ngwenya is also one unlucky talented star. Anyhow let's not judge them, gud luck ko Mvela ntwana, maybe u might make ur way back to PSL ko Black Leopards

I just hope you have not angered some people with that period- it brings certain harsh memories in the lives of other people... phela this is the period of hunger in some teams. eg. Pierats does not know what the Cocacola cup is... and this is a fact! And it is a fact that Chiefs is the first team to win and defend a million rand trophy...

The only reason I do not really like this guy is the horror he made my team endure in 2001 at the finals of Coca-Cola cup. Yena le Standton Frederichs made life hell for Paul Evans, Sammy Magalefa and Cosmos. 5-0 the score line was I think. He sinned against Cosmos. How can you teach the University of SA football a lesson. Hosshee
