Chiefs Sweat As Tower Put In Moon Boot

Kaizer Chiefs will be hoping for good news in the coming days after their defender, Erick Mathoho, was seen in a protective boot in Brazil.

The 26-year-old defender had to sit out of the clash between South Africa’s U23s and Iraq this morning after sustaining an ankle injury in the defeat to Denmark, and was unable to help his side in their - unsuccessful - attempts to reach the next round of the Olympic Games.

‘Tower’ is set to play a vital role in the Amakhosi’s plans for the 2016/17 season as they look to put their last campaign behind them, and will always be one of Steve Komphela’s first names on the teamsheet - however, the severity of his injury is unknown.

Owen da Gama's side drew 1-1 in the early hours of this morning as they were sent crashing out of the 2016 Olympics, and the players will now be returning to their respective teams.

Chiefs will now be waiting to see whether or not the centre back will be available when they start their Absa Premiership campaign off against last season's runners-up, Bidvest Wits later this month.
