Mamelodi Sundowns’ Injury Update Ahead Of CAF Champions League Clash
Mamelodi Sundowns confirmed that Head Coach, Pitso Mosimane, will be without the services of Khama Billiat but the team has been given a boost in defence.
Sundowns will lock horns with Esperance Tunis tomorrow, June 21, in a must-win CAF Champions League group encounter.
Masandawana is currently in third place in group C after obtaining just four points out of three matches played in the competition.
A win for the Brazilians will increase the Chloorkop-based club’s chances of ending off the group stages in the top two, however, much will depend on the results of AS Vita Club and Saint George who will be in action today, June 20.
Head Coach Mosimane has been given a boost ahead of the team’s encounter against Esperance, as Sundowns confirmed on their official website that centre backs Wayne Arendse and Motjeka Madisha returned to training, while Hlompho Kekana and Anthony Laffor could make their way back into the squad.
The club also stated that Billiat is still not fit to feature for the Brazilians and it remains to be seen whether the Zimbabwean will recover in time for Sundowns’ next encounter against Saint George on July 01.
“Sundowns will still be without talisman Khama Billiat, but Wayne Arendse and Motjeka Madisha were back in training following injuries which impacted heavily on the team’s defensive capabilities,” Sundowns said on their official website.
