Tough break for Mahlasela

Posted: 15 January 2018 Time: 16:50

Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed the extent of midfielder Kabelo Mahlasela's knee injury following his successful surgery last week.

Mahlasela joined Chiefs from Bloemfontein Celtic, as part of a swap deal plus cash that saw defender Lorenzo Gordinho go on loan in the opposite direction, a fortnight ago.

However, in his first training session with his new teammates, the 26-year-old winger suffered a bad injury after "his knee got into a bad position after an unlucky tackle,” according to Chiefs physio David Milner.

The club have since released a statement to confirm that Mahlasela will be out of action for up to four months, suggesting he might well only make his Amakhosi debut next season.
