Furman May Need Groin Operation

Bafana Bafana and Doncaster Rovers midfielder, Dean Furman, may need an operation on his groin at the end of the current season.

The 25-year-old, who was omitted from the Bafana squad for the friendlies with Australia and New Zealand, has been struggling with the knock since returning to the UK from the 5-0 defeat to Brazil.

Speaking to the Siya crew, Furman explained that his current condition is being managed until the end of the season, and the club’s doctors will then assess whether he needs to have an operation on it or not.

Furman told the crew, "Since the Brazil game I have been struggling with an injury in my groin area. We are managing it to get me through to the end of the season and then we will re-assess how bad the damage is and if we need to have an off-season op."

He also added that he wanted to make sure that he was fully ready for the upcoming African Cup of Nations qualifiers, saying, "If no operation is needed the advice is to use the off-season to rest as much as possible. We've got qualifiers and the AFCON next season and I want to be rested and at my peak."

The midfielder has been back in the Rovers team for their last three games after a spell on the bench, playing 90 minutes in their most recent game against Birmingham City.

When Kaizer Chiefs hear of the reasoning behind Furman’s omission, they may look to argue a similar case for both Tsepo Masilela (knee) and Bernard Parker (ankle), two players who have been carrying injuries throughout the course of the season that have had to have been managed, who may also need an extended rest.
