Hlanti is one of the best left backs in Mzansi and while the Durban-born player’s talent cannot be questioned, his injury history is somewhat of a concern after being unfortunate with long-term injuries in recent seasons.

Going into the break, the Bafana Bafana international had been ruled out of action and expected to miss the remainder of the 2021/22 season due to the Achilles tendon injury he suffered at training in November last year.

The 31-year-old underwent surgery as the doctors want to get him back on the field to do what he does best.

With only seven starts to his name, as a high-profile player, a lot was expected from Hlanti following his arrival at Naturena, but injury has hampered his progress.

Hlanti’s contract with Chiefs runs until June 2023, however, concerns have been raised about the club’s return on investment in the player, according to sources in the know.
