Grobler confirms injury blow


SuperSport United attacker Bradley Grobler has confirmed he aims to get back to his best after being ruled out for the rest of the season through injury.

Grobler has been plagued in recent times by a number of injuries with his most recent setback requiring surgery which has effectively ruled him out of the rest of the 2021/2022 campaign.

Despite his latest setback, the 34-year-old insists he has no intention of hanging up his boots despite his recent injury concerns.

"It's okay, I'm getting there slowly and am still on crutches for another three or four weeks," Grobler tells KickOff.

"So yes, it's getting there and it's not as painful anymore, so I'm doing okay but I'm just bored.

"I underwent an operation so it's been three weeks now, but I'm not going to play this season again, it's done."

The Bafana Bafana international added he had every intention of reaching previous heights when getting back to full fitness.

"Definitely not hey, I felt good before the injury.

"I still feel like I've got time left and now the plan is to focus on rehabilitation and making sure I'm ready for pre-season.

"I don't blame anyone for my injuries, the two operations I had were for groin injuries, while the other two were contact injuries on my ankle which happened during training you know.

"I feel very disappointed knowing that my season is over, especially after winning the Golden Boot and not being able to try and defend it.

"It's very frustrating, and I'm very disappointed, but as you know it's life and I just need to take as many positives from it as I can.

"The last time I suffered an ankle injury it was the same operation, and I came back and won the Golden Boot.

"100% I still feel like I've got a lot to offer."

SuperSport next face Platinum City Rovers in a Nedbank Cup Round of 16 clash at the Olen Park Stadium on Saturday.

Kick-off is at 18:00.
