Why Gordinho Isn’t Playing For Chiefs…
Ernst Middendorp has explained why Lorenzo Gordinho has been excluded from Kaizer Chiefs’ squad in recent weeks.
The 24-year-old returned to Naturena last month after a year-long loan with Bloemfontein Celtic, however has made just one appearance in the Absa Premiership and was once again left out of the squad to face Polokwane City.
Gordinho broke his arm shortly after he arrived back with the Glamour Boys, and it has now been a month since he was named in Middendorp’s matchday squad as he looks to try and get himself back fit for action again.
Chiefs’ official website quoted their head coach as saying, “Lorenzo last played a full match for Bloemfontein Celtic in December. He came to us, but then broke his arm. He is working hard to return to full match fitness.”
The club have three league games left before next month’s international break, and Gordinho will be eager to get back in contention as soon as possible in an attempt to help his side’s slim hopes of a title challenge.
