Nomvete returns home to recover


The speedy striker, who has lost his place in the Bafana Bafana squad over the past year, underwent surgery earlier this month after suffering the injury in pre-season training in Denmark.

His Danish club AB Aalborg, with whom Nomvete won the championship last season, say they expect him back within a week.

“We hope he’ll come back fully recovered and totally fit because he is a very important player for us,” said Lynge Jakobsen, the team director.

Aalborg are due to begin their Uefa Champions League campaign on Wednesday night against Albania’s Mordica and have already started the defence of their league crown, but lost their opening two matches in the new championship season.
