Serero A Doubt For UEL Tomorrow
Thulani Serero Is A Doubt For The Europa League Against Lazio
The South African midfielder, Thulani Serero, is a doubt for tomorrow’s UEFA Europa League tie after suffering an injury during Vitesse’s 3-0 win over Excelsior over the weekend.
Serero, 27, has done well at Vitesse since arriving from Ajax Amsterdam at the start of the season, however, didn’t feature in either of Bafana Bafana’s recent World Cup qualifiers after he arrived complaining of a hamstring problem.
While he was judged to be fit enough to face Excelsior at the weekend, he was taken off after 70 minutes to receive medical attention and it remains to be seen whether he will be given the chance to play against Italian club, Lazio, on Thursday.
Vitesse will be hoping to have him fit as they embark on their first ever UEL group stage game, especially given that their only league defeat this season came when he was missing, although he is currently a doubt for Henk Fraser.
The Dutch side faces Lazio at 21h05 South African time and the game will be live on SuperSport 2.
