Kaizer Chiefs have issued an injury update on three of their first-team players which includes Samir Nurkovic.
Nurkovic has been a big miss for the Soweto giants this season after he underwent surgery following the conclusion of the 2019/20 season back in September.
Chiefs have since confirmed progress to Nurkovic’s rehabilitation and revealed that they expect the Serbian striker to return to training in two weeks time.
“Samir Nurkovic is reported progressing well and the medical team are anticipating his return to the training fields in two weeks’ time. The striker is recovering from a surgery that has seen him miss the start of this season,” the club said on their official website.
The club also revealed that Reeve Frosler, who picked up a nasty injury at the weekend during the encounter against Orlando Pirates, has been ruled out for eight weeks.
“Reeve Frosler was seen hobbling off the field and substituted in the 29th minute of the MTN8 Cup semi-final match against archrivals Orlando Pirates on Sunday, 8th November. Frosler was subsequently withdrawn from the Bafana Bafana squad due to play in the Cameroon Afcon qualifiers this weekend. Following the medical examination, the fullback-cum-midfielder underwent MRI which confirmed he will be sidelined for 8 weeks,” Chiefs said.
“Meanwhile, Keletso Sifama missed the past two games due to a minor ankle injury. The young striker has recovered, and the medical team have given him all clear to resume full training,” the club added.
