Sundowns update on AJ and Kermit


Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Andile Jali is set to miss the DStv Premiership match against AmaZulu on Sunday as striker Kermit Erasmus remains doubtful due to injury.

Jali picked up a mild hamstring injury during the league match against Cape Town City while Erasmus suffered a knock to his ankle during Bafana Bafana camp.

Sundowns co-coach Rhulani Mokwena has confirmed that Jali is yet to train with the team due to the injury.

"We are sweating a little bit. We're sweating and a little bit concerned about AJ. He has not trained with us," Mokwena told the media.

"But we are getting good feedback from the doctors, so we have to see on AJ and assess leading up to the game.

"When Kermit comes back from Bafana Bafana we have to assess him because it's a muscular injury and all these studies show that niggles are always related to injury, 75 percent of the time.

"So it's important to treat that as precautionary and get our medical team to assess and have a look because Kermit is important for us."

Sundowns are expected to welcome back a number of players from international duty including Peter Shalulile, Motjeka Madisha, Themba Zwane, Brian Onyango, Denis Onyango, Promise Mkhuma and Thapelo Morena.
