The sky’s the limit for Macbeth “Killer” Mahlangu.
The 19-year-old will compete at the Olympic Games later this month.
He was named in the South Africa Under-23 side that is set to participate in the Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan.
Head Coach of TS Galaxy, Owen Da Gama, is not surprised by the meteoric rise of Mahlangu.
“I’m very proud of Macbeth. I’m also proud of the President (Tim Sukazi) who scouted him during the club’s trials.
“He identified him and brought him straight to the PSL. He has done well. His attitude at training and matches is something else. He is a very calm boy. Macbeth is not noisy. When he gets into that field and then you see the qualities.
“He’s got speed, good in the air, he wins one on one duels, and he can pass with left and right foot. What more do you want from him.” Da Gama explained.
Mahlangu is already in camp with the Under-23 team in Mpumalanga.
“I foresee a big future for this boy. I foresee him going very far. As long as he keeps his head level,” he added.
Da Gama is synonymous with turning raw talent into superstars. He nurtured the likes of the late Senzo Meyiwa, Happy Jele, Thuso Phala, and recently Peter Shalulile.
“He must approach the Olympic Games the same way in which he did when he made his debut. Take it one step at a time. Be positive and be calm. Just treat it like you are playing Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates, or Mamelodi Sundowns. I believe that if you play well against these teams then you can play against anybody in the world.” Da Gama elaborated.
