Buchanan On Six-Month Layoff

Bloemfontein Celtic’s Keagan Buchanan, who will be out for six months due to injury, is staying positive despite the setback.

The central midfielder had to be stretchered off the field in the weekend’s Nedbank Cup game against Wits, after getting a knock on his knee, and they went on to lose the game. His worst fears have been confirmed, after he went to see the doctor for a scan on Monday, and will have to watch from the sidelines for the next six months. That means he is set to miss preseason and will only come back after the start of the next campaign.

Speaking to the Siya crew, the former FC Cape Town man was visibly disappointed, but says he is looking beyond the pain and lengthy layoff.

“It’s not nice news for me, you know. I was starting to feel more confident and was getting to a level that I could build on for next season. I am disappointed, but I am determined to come back stronger than ever. The club and my teammates are giving me support, so I have no doubt that I will pull through,” he revealed.

Buchanan has started 17 league games so far and has seen his game grow considerably in his first season in the PSL, under Ernst Middendorp. However, the club will now have to attempt going for a top eight finish without his services, starting with Wednesday’s encounter against Golden Arrows.
