Sangweni Still Unavailable For Bucs

Orlando Pirates have confirmed that Siyabonga Sangweni is set to miss the first month of pre-season training with the rest of his teammates due to injury.

The strong Bafana Bafana defender’s 2012/13 season came to an abrupt end after picking a knee injury. According to the club’s official website, Sangweni will be working closely with the medical team to help him in his rehabilitation.

The club’s Biokineticist Mandy-Lee Solomon confirmed to Orlandopiratesfc.com that the player will still be unavailable for first team training because of his current situation.   

“Siya is currently in KZN nursing his injury. I can confirm that he will not be ready to start pre-season training next week. He comes back to Johannesburg next week and we will have to book him to work with the physiotherapist for at least a month and then we will see how he responds to treatment,” Solomon told the club’s official website.  

Meanwhile, the player himself told Orlandopiratesfc.com, “I have been out for a long time and it has not been good. I love the game and I love being in the field of play but I understand that this is one thing I must go through. I will take it easy and not rush myself to return to avoid reinjuring myself. I am back in Johannesburg on the 17th (of June)… I am ready to start the next phase of treatment.” 

Sangweni will no doubt be aiming to make it back in time for the Carling Black Label Cup on July 27, when Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs battle it out for title in the competition's third year of existence.
