Phungwayo battling with Achilles setback


The ex-Bidvest Wits man, who recently usurped Thabo Matlaba in the Bucs starting XI, sustained the blow during the MTN8 Final defeat to Platinum Stars at Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday.

Phungwayo will see a specialist shortly, with the prognosis expected to be unfavourable as immediately after the game he wrote on Twitter, that his 'season is over'.

Either way, the 25-year-old is taking strain.

"As a player, my feet are my working tools. Without them I cannot work and it makes life very difficult," Phungwayo told his club's official website.

"I am trying to be positive about it but it is hard.

"I will see a specialist on Monday and I will find out how long I will have to be out for. I was enjoying my game and that is why it is not easy to accept.

"But God is good. He will carry me through this one too. I believe I will overcome this injury."
