Exclusive: Nurkovic To Miss Two Months Of Football!

Samir Nurkovic played with pain-reducing injections in Kaizer Chiefs’ final eight games of the season, the Siya crew has been told! But it doesn't end there. 

As a result, the Amakhosi top goal scorer is understood to have undergone surgery on Wednesday and is expected to be out of action for at least eight weeks.

It’s thought the Serbian forward, who joined Chiefs in July last year and has impressed in his first season at the club, was battling with a groin injury and received treatment before going into the bio-bubble.

Nurkovic finished the campaign with 13 goals from 26 Absa Premiership matches and didn’t quite look his best post lockdown – and indications are that the injury contributed to the striker not being his usual best to help his side win the league.

He scored two goals in the seven matches (was suspended for one) he played in the bio-bubble.

Chiefs players have been given time off and will return for pre-season before the end of the month, but it is unlikely Nurkovic will be joining them.

The Siya crew has been informed that the 28-year-old went in for surgery this week and, although not yet confirmed by the club, he is expected to be ruled out for nearly eight weeks, which puts his return date somewhere around November.

PSL chairman Irvin Khoza had told journalists last month that the new season was pencilled in for the October 9 start date, but with that being an international calendar it is now expected that the 2020/21 campaign will kick-off a week later.
