Cape Town City head coach, Benni McCarthy was dealt a huge blow this week, with the confirmation that two of his midfielders have been ruled out of action for the rest of the season.
As reported yesterday by the Siya crew, McCarthy was hopeful that Thabo Nodada’s injury to the leg was just a bruise and nothing serious, adding that he could be available for the next game.
However, following the reports received from the team doctor, Nodada has been ruled out of action for the rest of the season.
Another player who also picked up an injury is Roland Putsche and it has since been confirmed that the Austrian will also miss the rest of the season.
“Cape Town City midfield pairing Thabo Nodada and Roland Putsche will be out for the remainder of the season after tackles endured during the 3-0 win over Highlands Park,” City confirmed on their official Twitter account.
“Thabo Nodada has suffered a right leg fracture, and Roland Putsche a meniscus tear. We wish both a speedy recovery and stress repeated concern over the unpunished violent conduct in the PSL,” the club added.
The duo picked up their respective injuries during their 3-0 win over Highlands Park on Friday night in the Nedbank Cup competition.
