Franklin Cale still weeks away from full fitness

Posted: 6 August 2014 Time: 16:24

Ajax Cape Town midfielder Franklin Cale has returned to training but will miss the early-season action as he remains at least a month away from playing competitive football.

Cale played just two games for Ajax early last season but a nagging knee injury forced him to miss the rest of the campaign after he underwent surgery to correct the problem.

According to Ajax coach Roger de Sa, the 31-year-old is back at full training but not yet ready to take to the field on matchdays.

“He [Cale] is back at training with the rest of the team and getting back now but is not 100 percent fit as yet,” De Sa tells

“He missed out on a lot of football last season so there is still work that needs to be done on him as he has gained weight. I would say he is some four to six weeks away from getting back to normal and being able to play in a competitive match again.

“What is encouraging is that the actual injury has healed now but we are now working on his body as he is still a bit heavy after missing out on all that football last season. Once the body gets back to shape, playing football will not be a problem for him,” explains De Sa.

Cale will definitely miss the early part of the season and is expected to only start playing next month.

He is fat like Khune, the only difference is that he has no nsumpa & amajiji on his face.

Another player who is going to skin alive the Amakhosi defence. We were told Khune wouldn't know what hit him when Cale will be done with him. This is the same player who was on numerous occasions compared to Shabba and we were told he has to be included in BB setup and bench Shabba.
