Ex-Moroka Swallows striker Les Grobler is still recovering in hospital following his operation.
He has been in hospital since March 8 and had his first operation on March 10.
According to a reliable source the South African legend is expected to spend another week in hospital.
“Les is still in hospital and will be there at least for another week. His first operation failed. So had another one three days later where he almost lost his life. It was a reversal of a stomach bag.
“He has been there since the 8th of March. But he is now on the road to recovery,” said the source.
Grobler who is Supersport United’s dangerman Bradley Grobler’s father, was a feared striker in his playing days at Swallows where he used to bend free kicks like David Beckham.
These days he is employed by Highlands Park as their head of development.
