More injury woes for Chiefs
More injury woes for Chiefs

Posted in News on Oct 16, 2002.

Kaizer Chiefs coach Muhsin Ertugral - already under intense pressure following a string of disappointing results - was given more food for thought and perhaps a headache to worry about on Thursday as most of his key players were confined to the treatment room.

Fortunately for the coach and his technical staff, their worries will be temporarily massaged, as the team will - according to latest Premier Soccer League fixtures – only be in action on October 27 when they visit their hoodoo team African Wanderers in Durban.

No less than six Amakhosi players are nursing injuries that could sideline some of them for up to three months.

Striker Kenny Niemach will be out of competitive action for almost three months as he recovers from a foot stress fructure.

Defender Patrick Mabedi is out for four weeks due to a structured fubula. However, Mabedi has already started training with the team.

Another defender Isaac Mabotsa started training on Wednesday but will only be fully recovered from a patella femoral in two weeks. Meanwhile, Nhlanhla Kubeka is in rehab while recovering from a hip injury.

Midfielder Arthur Zwane is recovering from a pelvis inflation that could take up to 10 months to heal completely. But team physiotherapist David Milner says Zwane can still play whenever he feels better.

Stanton Fredericks has a back problem but this, according to Milner shouldn’t take long to heal.

DR Congo striker Karamba Musasa has recovered from a hamstring injury and will be ready next weekend for the game against Wanderers.
