Sundowns provide update on Sirino


Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Manqoba Mngqithi has assured Brazilians fans they are trying to ensure midfielder Gaston Sirino is back with the team when they take on AmaZulu.

Sirino is yet to make an appaerance in the DStv Premiership this season after sustaining a hamstring injury a few weeks ago.

However, Mngqithi has confirmed that the Uruguayan has started light training and should be ready to play after the FIFA break.

"He should be ready to play the next match after the FIFA break. We were just cautious because he had a grade two hamstring [injury] and has taken two-and-a-half weeks [to heal]," said Mngqithi.

"He has started light training and hopefully by the time we come back [from the FIFA break] he will be back with the team."

Sundowns remain unbeaten in the league with seven points so far from three games. Their next match is against Usuthu in Tshwane on November 22.
