Cloete Out For Six Weeks

Maritzburg United have had some dismal luck when it comes to injuries to key members of their first team this season. The latest to be ruled out action for an extended period is defender, Ruben Cloete.

The player was involved in a nasty collision with Vuyo Mere on October 6 in the club's 2-0 defeat to Platinum Stars. As a result, Cloete sustained a fractured cheekbone which subesquently required surgery.

The club have since revealed that the 30-year-old has already undergone surgery and is expected to return to action in about six weeks time.

United's Commercial Manager, Younus Kadodia, told the Siya crew, "He's already had his surgery and we expect him to return in about six weeks or so, hey."
