It was the good and the bad on the injury front for Kaizer Chiefs on Tuesday, with Lebogang Manyama ruled out for up to three months, but Ramahlwe Mphahlele set to return to action.
Manyama picked up a knee injury during the past weekend’s 2-1 loss to Zesco United, which saw the Amakhosi go out 5-2 on aggregate in the Caf Confederation Cup.
“Lebogang Manyama has a torn knee ligament,” Chiefs physiotherapist Dave Milner told the club website on Tuesday.
“He will undergo surgery on Wednesday. He is expected to resume training in two to three months.”
But on a more positive note, right back Mphahlele has worked his way back on to the pitch from his own knee injury after being out since December 1.
