Born on July 18, 1989, Mandla Masango is a South African football player who plays the midfield position. He started his professional football career when he joined Kaizer Chiefs in 2007 and have represented his country at the U-17, U-20 and U-23 levels.
On 11 September 2014, Masango and Stuart Baxter were named ABSA Premiership Player and Coach of the Month. After being rested against University of Pretoria, he played in the 1–0 win over Orlando Pirates in the MTN 8 2014 Final. Masango scored a solitary penalty goal in the 45th minute against Maritzburg United on 27 September 2014. Masango eventually attracted the interest of Ligue 1 club Rennes which hoped to sign him in January or the end of 2014–15 shouldn’t his contract be extended. The club planned to send a representative for the then upcoming Soweto derby but was postponed as it was on the day of the funeral of the late South African national team captain Senzo Meyiwa. Apart from his football career, he has a diploma in General Management and is currently studying project management at Boston City Campus. Mandla currently plays for Randers in the Danish Superligaen.
