Carling Cup 2014

Thwala may not play again

Posted: 11 February 2013 Time: 03:27 pm

SuperSport United coach Gavin Hunt reveals that defender Lucas Thwala will play no further part this season.

It is the latest in a long run of injuries for the former Orlando Pirates left-back, who has spent a great deal of his career on the treatment table.

And Hunt believes this latest blow could be the final straw for Thwala.

"He will battle to play football again. He went over his leg in the reserve game against Sundowns last week and broke his ankle; it's very bad. It's going to be tough for him."

Hunt also gave out some mixed news on the SuperSport injury front.

"George Maluleka is out for some time. Davies Nkausu is fine, but Mark Haskins is also out."

Is Gavin Hunt now a doctor?

I once said this kind of pronounciations must be left to the medical team since they are the once qualified enough to speak.

By the way, I hope Thwala recovers from his injury...what a talent!

Gorge Maluleka is a good player..... If he moves to any small league overseas GI will see him n call him for Bafana. or He can go replace Yeye at chiefs since he is aging coz Bafana = (Chiefs + Pirates + Downs + Overseas).....

Hade Boy. Happy Champion Bucuneer Jele recovered so wwill you. I even read Some chimps also alluding something to the fact that he looks up to Happy, better you know Happy as you have rubbed shoulders with him while still at Mayfair.

I hope you recover but anyway even if you still do not recover etlist you have won the PSL champions league, something that even Kaizer Junoir with many year at Chmpis from his nappies still long for.

Bucuneer until Shabba prove a point!!! kwaaaaak

@Mgugudi, this time around, I am fully agreeing with you boet. Hunt must only focus on preparing the boys(available) for matches, and sharpening his plans to win games. This kind of comment may be mis-interpreted the other way.

Hardie MP product, I know for a fact that you will recover and survive the setback, and ppl like Gavin Hunt would run to the nearest Pie City, and grab the biggest humble pie for the year.

I remember Thwala in the 2010 Fifa world cup. He did good and I'm counting him in my prayers. Let's all support him with our prayers as it's never easy to watch as your career seems to fade away. Stay strong Lucky miracles DO happen.

@Jomo Sono wase Orlando:

Please re-read the statement carefully, and try to apply the little (mind) that you have, in analyzing the statement you quoted.It would help you to watch and read about football, before you comment on stuff you clearly are knowledge-shy off.

Jimmy only meant that "Jele''s injury was (again based on the medics) much worse looking at the fractures etc, but he recovered fully, as compared to his........Also, it may mean that, if Happy Jele having been treated in a government hospital, could recover fully, he (Jimmy) stands far better chances to recover, as we all know the Professional outfit he is employed at.

He is very rough in everything he does in the field that is why he is always injured
