Bucs Provide Injury Update For Motshwari, Memela & Four Other Stars

Orlando Pirates have provided injury update for Ben Motshwari, Luvuyo Memela and three other stars from the team.

Motshwari, who started the 2018/19 season like a house on fire as he has been playing regularly after missing the first two league matches of the campaign for Bucs, was a noticeable absentee from the Soweto giants’ line-up in their Telkom Knockout win over Kaizer Chiefs at the weekend.

The Buccaneers have confirmed that the central midfielder is working on his recovery for the injury that has halted his progress. 

“The Bucs medical team has released their latest injury update report. Midfielder Ben Motshwari is said to be steadily heading towards full recovery. The 27-year old was a noticeable absentee from the squad that did duty in the Telkom Knockout Cup this past weekend. Motshwari missed the semi-final clash against Kaizer Chiefs after suffering a knock in a friendly match on November 17. The medical team has been treating the player for his injury and will further monitor his progress over the next two days before they clear him for the match against Light Stars FC,” confirmed Bucs on the club’s official website.

“Meanwhile, winger Luvuyo Memela who is recovering from a long term injury continues to undergo rehabilitation. Amigo, as he is affectionately known, has started his first phase of strength work combined with work on the treadmill as well as aqua training,” confirmed Bucs.

Ntsikelelo Nyauza (ankle), Mthokozisi Dube (hamstring) and Brilliant Khuzwayo (ankle).
