Recently recovered Kaizer Chiefs defender, Tsepo Masilela, has praised the club’s medical team for helping him with his rehabilitation.
The 28-year-old spent a lengthy spell on the sidelines recently after picking up a hamstring injury against Moroka Swallows, going on to miss a number of games as he recovered.
However, since making his comeback, the defender is getting back to his best and could prove to be a vital player for the Amakhosi in their pursuit of the PSL, Nedbank Cup and CAF Champions League.
Masilela praised the club’s medical team when talking to their official website, also saying that he makes sure he does extra work too. He said, "I continue to work very hard with the help of the physios. I follow their programme for rehabilitation. I also do a lot of individual work.
I don't sit back when I am injured, I do a lot of extra training. It doesn't mean when you have a leg injury your whole body must stop with the training. That is how I manage to keep up my fitness.”
After beating Orlando Pirates this past weekend, Chiefs’ attention now turn to Ajax Cape Town as they look to consolidate their position on top of the PSL.
Speaking about Ajax, Masilela said, "Ajax are a good team. They have an exciting bunch of young players who are full of energy. They will be very difficult opponents especially now that they have the new coach in Roger de Sa. There are no easy games anyway in this league. We will give our best to win.
"I saw a little of their game against Polokwane City. They looked very dangerous on attack but we will be ready to take them on. It's our home fixture and we will do our best to win the game.”
Chiefs welcome Ajax to the Peter Mokaba Stadium tomorrow night at 19h30.
