Injury Update

25 October, 2017 |

The Technical Team can breathe a sigh of relief following the news on midfielder Musa Nyatama’s injury in Orlando Pirates’ 1-all draw against Platinum Stars in the ABSA Premiership last week.

There was fear amongst the Bucs faithful when the 30-year old was stretchered off in the clash, that he would be out for a lengthy period of time. His absence from the Soweto Derby three days later made for a grim prognosis, however the Bucs medical team have revealed that the injury is not too serious.

According to the medical report, Nyatama suffered a grade 1 strain to the quad. He is currently undergoing rehabilitation and should return to full fitness within the next 2-3 weeks.

More good news to land on the Technical Team’s desk is the return of defender-come-midfielder Gladwin Shitolo to full training, while Happy Jele and Mthokozisi Dube are said to be recovering well with their respective injuries.
