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 KickOff.com.
"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.
