Posted: 4 January 2017 Time: 12:21
May Mahlangu is set to make a quicker than expected recovery from injury and should join his Dinamo Bucharest teammates for their winter training in Spain this month.
The Bafana Bafana international scored a sublime goal for his Romanian club against bitter rivals Steaua Bucharest last month but was later injured in the game.
He told reporters he expected to be out for “several months”, but has responded well to treatment and according to reports in Romania will link up with teammates in Spain from January 15-29.
There they will take advantage of the warmer weather and play friendlies against Chinese top-flight side Tianjin Teda, Videoton of Hungary, German Bundesliga II team Eintracht Braunschweig and Swiss second-tier side FC Zurich.
Dinamo have not had the best of seasons to date and are currently fifth in the Romanian league, 10 points behind leaders Viitorul.
They resume their league campaign on February 2 against Viitorul and also have the second leg of their Romanian Cup semifinal against Steaua in March.
Mahlangu’s goal helped Dinamo to a 4-1 first leg lead in that match.
