Hlatshwayo Racing Against Time

Ajax Cape Town defender Thulani Hlatshwayo is racing against time to be fit and ready for the team’s Absa Premiership match against Kaizer Chiefs on Tuesday.

Hlatshwayo suffered a concussion in Ajax’s 0-0 draw with University of Pretoria last weekend, where fellow teammates Nhlanhla Shabalala and Cecil Lolo also suffered injuries during the game.

The 23-year-old defender has been training by himself to try and regain full fitness in time to face defending league champions Kaizer Chiefs at Cape Town Stadium on Tuesday.

Head coach Muhsin Ertugral described the match against AmaTuks as similar to the nature of a rugby match.

The coach told Soccer-Laduma at Ajax Cape Town’s press conference, “Thulani has not trained with the team after his stitches. He’s got a concussion. He told me down the stairs, ‘don’t worry coach, I am ready’.  I think it must be 65 concussions that he had for the club. It’s unbelievable how many times he puts his body on the line.”

The Urban Warriors will no doubt remember their last match against Kaizer Chiefs at Cape Town Stadium on May 1, 2013, when they beat Chiefs 3-1.

Other news coming from Ikamva is that striker Nathan Paulse has missed training due to injury, with Franklin Cale and Travis Graham also out of action.
