Dolly Update As UCL Beckons
Keagan Dolly could be back in action again before the end of the year as he looks to help Montpellier in their push for a spot in the UEFA Champions League.
The 25-year-old hasn’t played since picking up a nasty injury against Strasbourg back in September, however, he’s now progressing well through his rehabilitation and should be back at some point in December.
Dolly has had to watch from the sidelines as his side’s impressive start to the season continued, and he will be itching to get back out on the field before 2018 comes to an end.
The Siya crew spoke to the attacker, who got engaged in France this week, and he revealed that – after a few more tests – he’ll be ready to start playing for the reserves and get back his match fitness.
Dolly said, “I’m really excited because it’s almost time for me to join the team and resume full training again. I’ve probably got just one or two weeks left of tests and ball work, and then I’ll be ready. It’s been a very frustrating past few weeks but I’ve always stayed positive. I’m not really sure on which specific game I’ll be back for, but I’ll probably play with the reserves first.”
Montpellier have six Ligue 1 games left this year before the Christmas break, including their last game – on December 22nd – against French giants, Olympique Lyonnais.
The news of his impending return will be welcomed by Bafana Bafana head coach, Stuart Baxter, ahead of March's African Cup of Nations qualifier against Libya.
