Sundowns Defender Back In Training, Return To Squad Beckons
Mamelodi Sundowns Defender Back In Training, Return To Squad Beckons
Mamelodi Sundowns have confirmed that Wayne Arendse is back in full training following an ankle injury he sustained in March this year.
The 32-year-old who recently put pen to paper on a new contract with Masandawana made his last appearance for Head Coach, Pitso Mosimane, in a 2-0 win over Mariveni United in the Nedbank Cup competition on March, 06.
The club has since confirmed on their official Twitter account that the centre back underwent his first full training session last week, June 14.
Sundowns are currently in Tunisia, where they are gearing up for their upcoming CAF Champions League group fixture against Esperance Tunis.
The Brazilians suffered a home soil 2-1 loss to the Tunisians on June 02, where they dropped to third place on the group standings.
Head Coach Mosimane’s side will lock horns with Esperance once again on Wednesday, June 21, where a win will strengthen Sundowns’ chances of reclaiming their spot in the top two of the group standings.
Mosimane will want to have most of his key players at his disposal when the team faces the Tunisian side and it remains to be seen whether Arendse will be fit enough for selection come Wednesday.
