Chiefs Injury Update As Defender Ruled Out
Kaizer Chiefs’ Sibusiso Khumalo will be out for at least another 10 days as he recovers from the knee injury that he sustained last month.
The defender, who has alternated with Tsepo Masilela at left back under Steve Komphela, picked up the knock against SuperSport United and hasn’t played since the Amakhosi were knocked out by his former club.
Now, with only three games of the season left to play, it seems that the 27-year-old will only be available for the last match of the campaign against Bidvest Wits, with the games against Polokwane City and Platinum Stars both taking place within the next ten days.
Khumalo’s injury was explained by Chiefs’ physiotherapist, David Milner, who told the club’s official website, “Sibusiso Khumalo is nursing a knee ligament. He will be out of action for the next ten days.”
Meanwhile, the club also explained that Moleko is ‘doing well’ and that he has now returned to training, although it seems unlikely that he will be fit to make it into Komphela’s matchday squad for this weekend.
Moleko hasn’t played since December, with Ramahlwe Mphahlele making the right-back position at the club his own since arriving from Mamelodi Sundowns.
