Mamelodi Sundowns left-back Tebogo Langerman injured his ribs in the team's 2-0 win over Chippa United in the Telkom Knockout on Saturday.
He was replaced by Mzikayise Mashaba for the remainder of the game, and according to a Soccer Laduma source at the club, he is going to go for a scab today to determine the seriousness of his injury.
"Yesterday they gave him time to rest and today he will be going for a scan and that's when we will see how serious his injury is," the source said.
Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane discussed the knock and was hopeful that it wasn’t a fracture, which could mean extended time on the sidelines for the player.
"It's an injury in the rib and I just hope it's not a fracture. We need everyone at this point in time," Mosimane concluded.
