Kaizer Chiefs’ left back, Tsepo Masilela, was substituted in last night’s goalless Absa Premiership fixture against Mamelodi Sundowns.
Masilela pulled up with cramps and was subsequently replaced by Keegan Ritchie in the second half. Asked about the injury this morning (Wednesday), coach Stuart Baxter told the Siya crew that they are still monitoring the player's situation.
He said that the defender was given the morning off today, on Wednesday, so that he can be assessed by the team doctors.
“All the Bafana players were a bit tired and they were cramping. So when Tsepo was kicked, he cramped on his right calf muscle and we had to take him out. Today he is being monitored to see whether it is a serious injury or just cramping.
“I hope it is not serious because we need all the players at this time," Baxter explained.
