At the time of his ankle injury, Kutumela had been one of the influential players for Milutin Sredojevic’s team as he was playing regularly and enjoying form.

As confirmed by Bucs’ medical team at the time, the player had been ruled out for between three and six months, as the injury required surgery to heal.

“I am happy to be back training again. It has been a long time since I last trained with the guys, it was such a relief to be running with my boots on. The toughest part however in my recovery has always been the mental side of things but I am thankful to the Medical Team as well as the support that I have been getting from my family, the coaches and my teammates,” Kutumela told Bucs’ official website.

The Buccaneers have confirmed that the 25-year-old is likely to miss the opening game of the 2018/19 season against Highlands Park this weekend as he is currently working his way back to full fitness.
