When Morgan Gould joined Kaizer Chiefs he was expected to be a solid pillar in defence that was to lead the team to many titles, however, his three-year stint has so far been nothing short of injury plagued.
Since the 2012/13 season, the defender has had to endure an endless amount of trips to the physio room rather than the field.
His raptured Achilles tendon saw him ruled out for the majority of the campaign, and by the time he came back fit and healthy, Eric Mathoho had confirmed himself as the number one choice alongside Tefu Mashamaite.
The player was subjected to a minimal amount of appearances, missing the 2013 AFCON in the process as well as this year’s Africa Cup of Nations too.
Gould, who has been limited to just seven starting and seven sub appearances each this season, has now seen his career at Naturena suffer yet another blow.
It was confirmed earlier in the week that the 32-year-old’s season was over after he was subjected to yet another ruptured Achilles.
This will then keep Gould out until about October, therefore, meaning he will miss the start of next season too.
Gould’s contract is set to expire next June and this means he will have limited time to fight his way back into the squad in hope of earning a contract extension. Could his time at the club be over?
It is premature to ask a question, as few clubs will sign him in the middle of his recovery from such a harsh injury, but a club may be tempted to lure him in January 2016.
Khosi fans, it is a tricky situation, what do you make of it?
