News reaching the Siya crew is that Orlando Pirates defender Patrick Phungwayo underwent an operation on Monday, following his Achilles tendon injury.
Phungwayo suffered the Achilles tendon injury during Pirates’ penalty loss to Platinum Stars in the MTN8 final last weekend.
Pirates PRO Mickey Modisane confirmed to the Siya crew that Phungwayo went for an operation yesterday.
“Yes, Phungwayo went for an operation yesterday, but at this stage, I’m not sure how long he will be out of action,” said Modisane.
Meanwhile, Modisane said preparations for Pirates’ game against Esperance of Tunisia were going well.
The Buccaneers will take on Esperance in the CAF Champions League semi-final first leg at Orlando Stadium on Saturday night.
