The Painful Process – Ex-Buccaneer Opens Up

Former Orlando Pirates youngster, Charlie Hlalele, has spoken about his injury troubles that have delayed his progress at AmaZulu.

After failing to make it to the first team at Pirates, despite the talent he showed in the club’s reserve team in the MuliChoice Diski Challenge, Hlalele was excited to finally get a chance to play in the Absa Premiership when he was signed by AmaZulu, following a stint with Tornado FC in the Eastern Cape.

However, the midfielder sustained and Achilles tendon injury that derailed his chances of making an immediate impact at the Durban-based club. The attacker has since been in recovery for 13 months.

“I sustained an injury two weeks prior to the start of the season and it took me quite a long-long time to recover. It was a painful process, but I had to take it one day at a time. I had to do my rehab, my strength, and always tried to stay positive and disciplined,” Hlalele told AmaZulu’s official website.

“Everyone knows, to be on the sidelines for so many months is not easy. It’s just that I need to work on my full fitness. If I am lucky enough, I can win my spot in the team, the squad or even in the starting line up in one of the remaining matches,” said 25 year old.
