Mayambela’s Injury Not Serious

Mark Mayambela’s knee injury is not a serious one, although he could be forced to miss Djurgardens’ next league game against Mjallby on Friday night.

The 26-year-old has found a new lease on life in Sweden since being handed a lifeline by Djurgardens, and has started their first two games of the season.

However, Mayambela’s debut was sadly cut short after it was discovered that one of the club’s fans had been killed, while his second game also ended abruptly after he had to be hauled off before half time.

After the game it was revealed that ‘Professor’ had picked up a knee injury during the game, and that it was the medical team’s decision to take him off rather than exacerbate the problem.

Now, speaking to the Siya crew, the club’s sporting director, Bo Andersson, has explained that Mayambela’s injury is not one to worry about. He said, “He injured his knee in the game and we decided to substitute him to be careful. It’s not a serious injury but he might miss the next game.”

Andersson also explained that the midfielder has been settling in very well in the team, with whom he has been playing an attacking role. He added, “Mark has made a very promising start here and the fans already have a song for him. He’s made a good first impression and we’re very proud to have him at our club.”

Djurgardens have won the Allsvenskan trophy 11 times over the years, and Mayambela will be hoping that he can help them lift their 12th title this season.
