Mamelodi Sundowns still have a few players nursing injuries ahead of this weekend’s clash, although Pitso Mosimane seems confident that his team could be at full strength.
Regulars in Anele Ngcongca, Ricardo Nascimento and Denis Onyango are all nursing injuries, although the trio has travelled with the team to Egypt where they are still being closely monitored by the Sundowns medical team.
The Brazilians will take on Al Ahly on Saturday, February 29, in the first leg of the CAF Champions League quarterfinals.
“As we all know, we rested Denis (Onyango) because he’s got that hamstring that always gives him problems, we rested him but he trained today, with light sessions – coach Wendall (Robinson) is making sure that he is available,” Mosimane told the media from Egypt yesterday.
“It is good to see Anele (Ngcongca) doing the warm up, but he still has some irritations with his groin. (Anthony) Laffor is back, Ricardo had a groin strain also and I think the doctors took a lot of precautions on him and he is back, he’s had a few training sessions and it is good to see him back also,” he added.
