SuperSport United head coach Kaitano Tembo believes midfielder Lucky Mohomi still needs more time before he can get to full fitness.
Mohomi who joined ‘Matsatsantsa’ from Mamelodi Sundowns in the previous transfer window period is slowly cementing his place at the Pretoria side.
The 29-year-old has featured in 10 matches since his arrival with two goals and one assist in all competitions.
“With Lucky, he has been at Sundowns for the past six years I think he has played less than seven games, so in terms of match fitness he is still way behind,” Tembo told the media.
“But I am happy with his progress, that’s why we are not really playing him 90 minutes. Today he came in with a tight hamstring so I was a little bit worried. You could see the legs were a little bit gone, so I was a little bit worried that’s why we withdrew him.
“It will take time for him as well as Evans (Rusike). Evans hasn’t played much football, he is been out for the past six months through an injury. So it’s progress, we will have to try and make them match fit. Sometimes it doesn’t also help when you are playing after every two games, so there is no enough time to train. All you can do is try and manage the players in terms of recovery,” he said.
Mohomi was on the score sheet when United lost 2-1 to Bloemfontein Celtic as well as during the 1-1 draw against Swallows.
