His talent was undeniable, and his potential seemed boundless as he quickly became a key player for the team.

Historic Move to Al Ahly

In 2017, Mahlambi’s career took a historic turn when he signed with Egyptian giants Al Ahly, becoming the first South African to play in the Egyptian top flight.

This move was seen as a stepping stone to greater heights for the young midfielder.

A Career Unfulfilled For Phakamani Mahlambi 

With minimal impact at AmaZulu and a brief stint at Chippa United, Mahlambi has been without a club since July 2022.

His former teammate, Somila Ntsundwana, reflects on Mahlambi’s immense talent but also emphasises the importance of attitude and respect in the game.

Reflections on Attitude and Professionalism

Ntsundwana shares his insights, suggesting that while talent is crucial, the right attitude and surrounding oneself with honest people are equally important.

He draws comparisons with Themba Zwane, whose humility at an older age stands in contrast to Mahlambi’s approach during his peak years.
