Thabiso Kutumela has begun his long journey to full recovery after undergoing a successful ankle surgery two weeks ago. The 24-year old has started physiotherapy albeit at light intensity as he is gradually introduced to strengthening work.
Previously, orlandopiratesfc.com stated that Kutumela will be out for between 4-6 weeks after his operation but the Bucs medical team is cautious about rushing the forward’s recovery and for this reason, they’ll not commit to an actual return date.
Meanwhile, defender Diamond Thopola is said to be nearing full fitness and is expected to start training fully with the rest of the team on Monday.
According to the Bucs medical team, Diamond has fared well in his rehabilitation process and has little to no discomfort or pain in the affected area.
