Mini Crisis! Chiefs Confirm Absence Of Trio

Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed that three of their players will miss this weekend’s clash with Platinum Stars, also suggesting that they could be in doubt for the Nedbank Cup semi-final.

The Amakhosi face a big two weeks in their season as they look to avoid finishing outside the Absa Premiership’s top three for the third season in a row and challenge for the cup in order to avoid a third trophyless season in succession.
 
It was reported by the Siya crew earlier in the week that Ramahlwe Mphahlele, Erick Mathoho and Teenage Hadebe had not returned to training, and it has now been confirmed that they won’t feature against Dikwena.
 
 
Kaizer Chiefs’ first team physiotherapist David Milner, said, “We have a few injury concerns to deal with after the Chippa United game. The match resulted in three players getting injuries.
 
“Rama will take seven days to recover from the hamstring. We will be monitoring him over the next few days. Tower had a blow to the head and thereafter he felt dizzy. He will be out for seven to ten days. He is suspected to have aggravated his ankle. We will assess in the next four days.”
 
While Hadebe is already suspended for this weekend’s game, he will – alongside ‘Rama’ and ‘Tower’ – have to be assessed next week to see if he can make a return for the crucial semi-final.
 
Kaizer Chiefs’ only fit centre backs now are Daniel Cardoso (who is a booking away from suspension) and young Siyabonga Ngezana.
