“Thabiso Kutumela has begun his long journey to full recovery after undergoing a successful ankle surgery two weeks ago. The 24-year old has started physiotherapy albeit at light intensity as he is gradually introduced to strengthening work,” Pirates confirmed on the club’s official website.

“Previously, stated that Kutumela will be out for between 4-6 weeks after his operation but the Bucs medical team is cautious about rushing the forward’s recovery and for this reason, they’ll not commit to an actual return date,” the club confirmed.

Bucs have also provided an update on the progress of Diamond Thopola, who has also been sidelined with an injury.
