Orlando Pirates' Menzi Masuku might return in MultiChoice Diski Challenge from injury

Posted: 13 January 2016 Time: 14:07

Orlando Pirates midfielder Menzi Masuku might make his return from an ankle injury in the MultiChoice Diski Challenge this weekend.

Masuku has been a revelation since making his professional debut last season, and helped the South Africa Under-23 side qualify for the 2016 Olympics in Brazil.

However, Masuku sustained a knock at training which kept him out of the League game against Platinum Stars and will see him miss tonight's match against University of Pretoria.

“Everything is going well for me but I started the year on the bad side because I got a knock at training,” the player tells “I’m still recovering and hopefully I will get fitter. I think this weekend I might get into the MultiChoice Diski Challenge and after that see what happens.”

Pirates are lying 12th on the Absa Premiership log and will seek to break a five-game winless run against AmaTuks at Orlando Stadium.
