City Striker Set To Go Under The Knife?
Cape Town City Striker Set To Go Under The Knife?
One of Cape Town City’s strikers could be set to go under the knife this week with the club's medical team expected to make a decision in the coming days
Judas Moseamedi, who proved clinical when coming off the bench for the team last season, could be set to undergo surgery this week following an injury to his knee, which could see him face up to three months out on the sidelines.
The 23-year-old striker is renowned for scoring the injury time winning-goal against Kaizer Chiefs in an Absa Premiership clash last season (3-2), which helped City maintain their spot in the top three of the league standings.
It was also Moseamedi’s winning goal against SuperSport United which saw the City side being crowned 2016 Telkom Knockout champions last year.
However, with the 2017/18 season soon to be underway, it could be a couple of months before the striker gets back to business.
Sources at the club have confirmed that the medical team will be monitoring the player's injury and make a decision about whether or not Moseamedi requires surgery in the coming days.
City currently have both Aubrey Ngoma and Moseamedi on their list of injuries, although, Head Coach Benni McCarthy won’t need to worry too much about the duo, as he will look to the likes of Lebogang Manyama, Lehlohonolo Majoro and Ayanda Patosi to build a formidable attack and bring in the goals.
