Positive Injury Update For Chiefs Defender

A Kaizer Chiefs young defender is making good progress during his recovery and should be ready to get back to fighting for a spot in Head Coach Ernst Middendorp’s side.

Njabulo Blom suffered from a tight thigh muscle, which kept him out of action for the Amakhosi first team for a few weeks.

However, Blom is making good progress, as confirmed by the player and should be ready for selection should he be called upon, once football returns to action.

“As far as my injury from tight thigh muscle, our technical team have been supportive and giving me all the necessary treatment and encouragement, I need. I am ok now and once we get back to the fields, I should be ready to return to playing,” the player said on Chiefs official website.

Blom also reflected on the greater moments of his season with Amakhosi, where he played the full 90 minutes in a 2-0 win over Mamelodi Sundowns.

“It was my first big match I played since I turned out for the first team, I think I did well on the day and from the feedback I received it really made me proud, I will always cherish that moment. Most importantly is use that performance as a yardstick to be repeated consistently going forward. It was a high tempo game and I am glad I helped the team to perform on the day,” he said.
