Keita abandons Arrows medics

Posted: 22 January 2013 Time: 03:47 pm

Golden Arrows midfielder Souleymane Keita has abandoned the club's medical expertise as he battles to complete his recovery from a knee operation that was done last year.

Keita was signed at the beginning of the season when Muhsin Ertugral was still in charge only played just a few matches before picking up that knee injury which eventually forced him to undergo surgery.

However, the Malian midfielder has found no joy in making a return from that injury and his decision to seek his own medical advice has raised suggestions that he could as well be on his way out of the club.

"Keita is injured and had an operation which according to him didn't go right which is why he has since decided to do his own thing. The club has given him permission to seek his preferred medical advice like he requested since he appeared to be not happy with what the club was doing for him.

"It is for that reason that he hasn't reported back to training as yet. At this moment we don't know when he will be back because I don't even know where he is now," explains Vusumuzi Vilakazi, the Arrows spokesman.

The 26 year-old journeyman has already played his club football in Mali, United Arab Emirates, Algeria, Qatar, Italy and Turkey.

Though Keita still has another year on his contract has found out that the club will be willing to allow him to leave due to leave if his injury problems don't come to an end.

Meanwhile, Zambian midfielder Justine Zulu is back at training with the rest of the squad after recovering from an ankle injury.

Joseph Musonda of Zambia was injured in the AFCON final last year and he was healed by the same Arrows docters when he came back from the very same competition you r watching now.

i've played professional football for a very long time (3yrs Mvela), there things that happen to us players and coach that the public dnt knw about. Do you realy think this guy can choose to spend his money if the team Dr is that good? Look @ Morgan G,Jali, Yeye, Mphela, BBM, Tau, Mhlongo to mention few, all this guys ddnt choose their own Dr's coz they where/are gatting best medical assistence in their respective teams. i fully understand his frustrations, team bosses are cruel # fact# wish u a speedy recovery my man, solder on.
