University of Pretoria's Vukile Mngqibisa suffers similar knee injury to Chiefs' Itumeleng Khune

University of Pretoria centre-back Vukile Mngqibisa faces up to six months out after picking up a knee injury similar to the one suffered by Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune.

Khune was recently called up for Bafana Bafana's World Cup qualifiers with Angola but he sustained a torn meniscus in training.

Mngqibisa endured much the same fate in a friendly match against SuperSport United a fortnight ago.

"I got an injury when we were playing a friendly match against SuperSport two weeks ago and it is a knee meniscus I was in hospital but now I'm out," Mngqibisa explains to

"They said I can't kick the ball for the next five or six months. It is a similar injury to Itumeleng Khune which is a meniscus, and that is what I was told by the doctors.

"Of course nobody likes to be injured because I just arrived at the club and now I suffer this injury while the team is also not doing well."

The 27-year-old has made three League appearances for struggling AmaTuks since his arrival from Polokwane City in the off-season.

Mngqibisa's last outing was in a 4-0 loss to Chippa United on August 25.
