Mwafulirwa Limps Out Of Tuks

Russel Mwafulirwa, who was out of action for about three months with a knee injury, started pre-season training with University of Pretoria on Monday, however was forced off the field after aggravating the old injury.

The Malawian was hoping for a PSL return ahead of the 2013/14 campaign, however is again nursing the old injury. He was linked with a return last season, after an unsuccessful stint with Swedish side IK Sleipner.

Tuks assistant coach Sammy Troughton monitored the lanky striker, and it was immediately noticeable that Mwafulirwa had not fully recovered.

Troughton told Soccer-Laduma, “He (Mwafulirwa) was here for one day. He trained with the side on Monday, but he still had a problem with his knee. I don’t know the extent of his injury, but he is not coming back. He won’t be training or playing at the club, because of his injury.”

Mwafulirwa will have to continue his search for a PSL return elsewhere, as Tuks aim to get their squad ready for the new Absa Premiership campaign.
