Orlando Pirates attacking midfielder, Sifiso Myeni, is in contention for a place in Vladimir Vermezović’s squad that will do battle against Bidvest Wits on Sunday in the first leg of the MTN8 semi-final.
According to the official website of Pirates, the 26-year-old is back at training after missing out on the midweek league encounter against Bloemfontein Celtic.
Club physiotherapist, Shiraaz Josephs, announced that Myeni was struggling with a thigh strain but was doing normal training with the rest of the Bucs players.
“He is fine, the technical team will make the final call; his injury wasn’t serious we just had to take precautionary measures and afford him enough time to recover properly,” said Josephs.
“The technical team will decide if he makes the team or not,” he further confirmed.
Orlando Pirates are away to Wits at the Bidvest Stadium on Sunday 17 August 2014, with the match starting at 15:00.
