Sundowns Confirm Dolly Injury

Mamelodi Sundowns have been dealt a heavy blow after their star player picked up a hamstring injury and could be out for both their CAF Champions League match and their opening MTN8 encounter.

The club’s medical team concluded that Keagan Dolly has sustained a hamstring injury due to overloading during the past few weeks.

Dolly played a vital role for Masandawana in securing a semi-final spot in the Champions League encounter against Zamalek on Wednesday, July 27, before flying out to Brazil to join the U23 national squad ahead of the 2016 Olympic Games.

The 23-year-old participated in a full 90-minute friendly match against a team in Brazil, despite getting just under five hours of rest prior to participating in the Games.

Sundowns have revealed that the midfielder will be unable to feature in the last CAF Champions League group encounter against Enyimba in Nigeria on Tuesday, August 23, as well as the MTN8 derby-clash against Tshwane rivals, SuperSport United on Sunday, August 28.

“The Sundowns team doctors believe that Dolly, who did not travel with his teammates to Rustenburg for the pre-season camp might be out of both the Champions League match against Enyimba and the MTN8 match against Supersport United,” the club revealed on their official website.

With the absence of one of Pitso Mosimane’s most vital players in the squad, new arrivals Lucky Mohomi and Sibusiso Vilakazi could be given the chance to step up for the team - though Vilakazi will be unavailable for the Champions League clash as he is cup-tied.
