Kaizer Chiefs forward Samir Nurković will spend two months on the sidelines after undergoing a knee operation.
The club’s head physiotherapist David Milner has confirmed that the Serbian international “could be out for between six to eight weeks” after the operation on his right knee a week ago.
However, Amakhosi stated that Nurković has been recovering well at his home in Johannesburg, as he is working together with the Glamour Boys’ medical team to plot a way back to his fitness.
“Samir had surgery last week. They found a little tear in the cartilage of the right knee. The surgeon says he could be out between 6 to 8 weeks,” said Milner.
“They smoothed out the cartilage. Overall the operation was a success and he will be reassessed by the surgeon in a week’s time. We will have a clear idea as to what is going on and plan the recovery process. We believe the timeline provided is one we can work with for now.”
Meanwhile, the 29-year-old footballer added that: “All is well. It has been just a week since surgery. I am still moving around with crutches, it’s still painful but I am getting better and hopefully soon we can start the rehab.”
The Soweto giants also confirmed that Nurković is expected to be back at training in the new year.
