Sundowns Progress: 2 Training On Their Own, Another Facing Three Months

Mamelodi Sundowns’ attacking department seems to be thinning out a bit, with a few players nursing injuries, which could continue to be a concern for the Brazilians after they struggled to score last night.

Sundowns suffered a 2-0 (3-1 aggregate) loss to SuperSport United in the second leg of the MTN8 semi-finals, with it being their first fixture of the season where they struggled to score.

Although, Sundowns do have the likes of Themba Zwane and Hlompho Kekana getting on the scoresheet at times, Head Coach Pitso Mosimane would prefer having extra ammunition in his attacking department. 

As things stand, two of their attacking players, Mauricio Affonso and Anthony Laffor are still training on their own and not yet with the team.

“Laffor has been undergoing rehabilitation for his knee post his surgery and has started training on the field, but not with the rest of the team. Affonso, who was the club’s first signing of the current season, is still yet to make his debut following an ankle injury and he, too, is training on his own for the moment,” Sundowns said on their official website. 

In addition, Emiliano Tade could be out for a quite a bit, while Keletso Makgalwa is likely to only make his return at the end of December or in January next year.

“Tade is another player still yet to feature for Sundowns this season because of a knee injury. He is currently undergoing rehabilitation and has begun some gym work and hoping for a speedy recovery. Makgalwa will be on the sideline for quite a while still. He has begun rehabilitation in the gym and is expected to still be out of action for at least another three months,” the club added.
