Update On Nurkovic’s Injury Blow

Kaizer Chiefs are still expected to be without one of their key players when the new season kicks off with the MTN8 next weekend.

The Siya crew reported earlier last month that Samir Nurkovic played with pain-reducing injections in the final eight matches of the 2019/20 campaign and had subsequently undergone surgery, which would rule him out for two months.

His injury and return date is yet to be officially confirmed by the club, but Siya sources had indicated that the Serbian marksman would probably only be available for selection sometime in November when his troublesome groin has fully healed.

Nurkovic finished as Chiefs’ top goalscorer with 13 goals from 26 league matches, but will have to sit out their MTN8 quarterfinals fixture against Maritzburg United on Sunday, October 18, at the FNB Stadium.

Indications are that the forward has begun light training at the Amakhosi headquarters in Naturena with no contact just yet.

Chiefs have made it clear that he is a key asset when they issued a strong statement earlier this week rubbishing reports that there was an offer from Al Ahly and other potential suitors abroad for Nurkovic, who still has two more years left on his contract.

The club is awaiting the outcome of their FIFA ban appeal from the Court of Arbitration for Sport and therefore stressed it was important to hold on to what they have.
