South African winger Boipelo Mashigo made a return to action for SpVgg Unterhaching in Germany this past weekend.
The 18-year-old was introduced after 60 minutes and put in a solid shift which saw him assist Unterhaching’s second goal in their 3-2 loss against FCK.
In December last year, Mashigo got a knock on his ankle which saw him miss over 10 games for the third division side and he is pleased to be back on the field.
“I’m holding up fine, getting stronger and even back to full training which helped me to get some minutes last weekend for the first time in a few months, so hopefully I can get more minutes and finish the season on a good note.
“Everything is coming along well. Just taking it one day at a time and trying to get back to full fitness as fast as possible.”
Unterhaching are currently rooted at the bottom of the German 3.Liga table and the return of the SuperSport United product is a welcomed return.
He recently celebrated his 18th birthday and now qualifies for a European passport having been in Germany for the past five years. A few months ago, the club’s senior team coach admitted that it will be difficult to keep the talented teenager with a few Bundesliga teams showing huge interest.
They take on SV Waldhof on May 5 as they look to avoid relegation to the fourth tier.
