Due to Ahly's Caf commitments and his paperwork issues, Mahlambi hasn't had the opportunity to feature as yet despite scoring a brace in a friendly shortly after his arrival from Bidvest Wits last month.

Mahlambi returned to South Africa during the international break where he was part of the Bafana squad for the clash against Burkina Faso.

He will jet back to the Egyptian capital this week to rejoin his club teammates in Egypt
