Injury The Silent Killer

The best footballers in the world become the best because they spend hours dedicating themselves to building and strengthening their bodies, turning themselves to into finely tuned athletes who either don’t suffer serious injuries or recover quickly from what would otherwise put an average player out of action for months.

In the PSL players suffer injuries to the point where they spend entire months or even seasons until their contracts expire, forcing clubs to release them. This effectively kills players careers as their fitness drops, as well as their value.

One case in point is Stanton 'Stiga' Lewis who’s been hindered by injury all season long with his contract set to expire in June at Golden Arrows. Often players in Europe and in other parts of the world manage to bounce back amazingly from seemingly career-ending injuries.

It seems as players in the PSL are prone to more catastrophic, career-ending injuries than the rest of the world. Is this true and how could teams in the PSL limit the degree and frequency of these injuries?
