Word coming out of the Orlando Pirates camp is that midfielder Andile Jali has been ruled out of Sunday’s CAF Champions League game against Al Ahly.
As reported by the Siya crew earlier today, Jali, who injured his shoulder during last night’s Absa Premiership match against Polokwane City, went for treatment this afternoon.

Pirates PRO Mickey Modisane now tells the Siya crew that the tough tackling midfielder has been ruled out of the Ahly game.
“Jali experiencing some discomfort in his shoulder and has been ruled out of the Ahly game. He’ll undergo some tests later to see if he will be ready for Tuesday’s MTN8 game against Kaizer Chiefs,” said Modisane.
With Thandani Ntshumayelo not 100 percent fit, Lehlogonolo Masalesa is expected to once again fill the void left by Jali.
Pirates will take on Al Ahly in a make-or-break CAF Champions League match at Orlando Stadium on Sunday.
