Kaizer Chiefs midfielder, Lucky Baloyi, is back in full training after recovering from a knee injury he picked up in Botswana in November.
The 22-year-old has played just two league games for the Amakhosi so far this season, last featuring in the 1-0 defeat to Ajax Cape Town on November 5.
Baloyi sustained a major injury during Chiefs’ friendly win over Mochudi Centre Chiefs in Botswana later that month, and has spent the last few weeks trying to make a full recovery.
Now the talented midfield man is back in full training, and says that he’s aiming to help the team whenever Stuart Baxter calls upon him to play.
Baloyi told Chiefs’ official website, “I don’t remember how the injury came about. I just woke up in hospital with a big cut on my knee. I was told later that I was pushed and fell on the synthetic track surfacing. I am recovering from the injury but I am not yet at that level of playing in a competitive match.
“I am still doing some extra workouts so that I can matchup with the other guys so that I can be available for the upcoming games. We have lots of games coming up. We have the league and the Nedbank Cup to defend and we are also playing in the CAF games.
“So far I am ok but I am not in a hurry. I am doing extra work with the physical trainer so that I can get ready when the team needs me. I must be on the same level with my teammates. I don’t want to disappoint when I get a chance to play. This was my first serious injury. I missed about six games in the process of recovering.”
Chiefs’ next game will see them take on Moroka Swallows on Friday night as they look to extend their lead at the top of the PSL.
