There is some news regarding Sipho Mbule after he was missing in action when SuperSport United thumped Swallows on Sunday afternoon.
According to information provided to the Siya crew, the midfielder is on the mend from a shoulder injury, which is understood to have been a “freak accident” at home and has since ruled Mbule out for two more weeks.
SSU coach Kaitano Tembo had briefly spoken about the injury early last week ahead of their goalless draw against AmaZulu in Durban, a DStv Premiership clash where it was evident Mbule’s impact was missed.
But they were a different team at the weekend, dispatching the Dube Birds with relative ease following a second half performance that led to them scoring three goals from Jamie Webber, Teboho Mokoena and Thamsanqa Gabuza.
Tembo’s men are in second place on the table.
Mbule, 23, started the opening three games for SSU having recovered from a “medical condition” that had ruled him out of the Olympic Games in Tokyo, where the club was hoping he would impress and earn a move to Europe.
But he is now currently on the injury list once more and working his way back to recovery, the Siya crew has been informed.
He is then still expected to sit out SSU’s league fixture against Maritzburg this coming weekend, but could be back for the Baroka FC clash on October 16.
