Mahlambi, 18, tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee and has been ruled out for up to nine months.

“By accounts of the medical staff, the operation was successful. It’s now a long road ahead for his rehab to get him back to fitness,” said Binkin.

Having been impressive for Wits this season under the guidance of Gavin Hunt, Mahlambi had been expected to go on and play an important role for Owen da Gama’s South African national under-23 team in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro in August.
