Mamelodi Sundowns have reported at least six injuries from their camp since resuming training over 10 days ago.
As expected, footballers are expected to battle injuries given the fact they had been out for three months because of Covid-19 and as they ease back into their normal routine getting back to full fitness could come at a cost.
“It has been more than ten days since the team gathered together in camp, and the squad has been put through their paces by the technical team to get back to full fitness,” said Sundowns in a statement.
“The last time the boys trained on the field was on the 17th of March as they were preparing for the mouth-watering clash against Orlando Pirates before the lockdown was instituted.
“Since then, training has not been the same for the boys as they had to train individually in small areas which are as big as 3×3 meters as they adhered to the lockdown rules. As the players ease back into training, some have experienced minor strains:
• Sammy Seabi: Hamstring strain
• Anele Ngcongca: Hamstring strain
• Aubrey Ngoma: Quadriceps strain
• Tiyani Mabunda: Hamstring strain
• Keletso Makgalwa: Back strain
• Mosa Lebusa: Back strain
Downs added: “The medical team is working hard to get the players back to their full strength in preparation for the restart of the local football season.”
