Ahead of tonight’s MTN8 semifinal second leg clash against SuperSport United, the club can confirm that four players will not be available for selection.
As confirmed by the medical team, Anthony Laffor, Mauricio Affonso, Emiliano Tade and Keletso Makgalwa are still nursing injuries.
Laffor has been undergoing rehabilitation for his knee post his surgery and has started training on the field, but not with the rest of the team. Affonso, who was the club’s first signing of the current season, is still yet to make his debut following an ankle injury and he, too, is training on his own for the moment.
Tade is another player still yet to feature for Sundowns this season because of a knee injury. He is currently undergoing rehabilitation and has begun some gym work and hoping for a speedy recovery. Makgalwa will be on the sideline for quite a while still.
The youngster was injured in our game against Cape Town City last month and underwent knee surgery four weeks ago. He has begun rehabilitation in the gym and is expected to still be out of action for at least another three months.
