Robert Ng'ambi says Gabadinho Mhango is the perfect candidate to be named Absa Premiership Footballer of the Season.

The Black Leopards striker hailed the form of his countryman and Orlando Pirates frontman, who leads the Premier Soccer League goal-scoring charts with 14 goals, in his debut season.

Ng'ambi added that it would be great for Malawi if Mhango was to win.

Speaking to the SowetanLIVE, he said: "Gaba has really done well for himself and was having an unbelievable season.

"I think he is having his best season and there is still more we can expect to see from him."

Mhango (27) has previously played for Bloemfontein Celtic, Golden Arrows and Bidvest Wits.

"I think it will be good for Malawi if he won the award for best player," Ng'ambi said.

"It will also motivate the up-and-coming players back home to work hard if they see one of their own achieving good things.

"It's not easy to win the player of the year but he deserves it. He has been in good form."
