Injured AmaZulu goalkeeper Kapini may have a neck operation

Posted: 8 April 2014 Time: 12:44

AmaZulu goalkeeper Tapuwa Kapini may have to go under the knife to treat a neck injury, according to Usuthu manager Craig Rosslee.

Kapini has not played since sustaining the knock in a 2-0 home loss to Mamelodi Sundowns on 9 March, with Philani Zikalala subsequently doing duty in his place. 

“At the moment it’s not good for him [Kapini] because we have to see what the situation is with his neck after the two weeks,” Rosslee told his club's official website.

“If it’s more serious than anticipated then he will be out for quite some time and might need an operation.”

In other team news, midfielder Sadney Urikhob has resumed training after twice breaking his foot.

“Sadney has broken his foot on two occasions now and in a scenario like this you can’t rush a player back," Rosslee said.

“We have to be cautious because we can do a lot of damage if we try to bring him back quicker than we need to.

“The most important thing is that he finishes full training sessions with the team and then we’ll slowly bring him back with the friendly games.

“That’s the only way to make sure that the player heals properly.”
