Thabiso Kutumela Kutumela set to miss rest of season

Orlando Pirates have confirmed that attacking-midfielder Thabiso Kutumela could miss the rest of the season after sustaining a serious ankle injury.

The Pirates medical team took to their official website to confirm and publicise details of the injury.

“The diminutive forward will be sorely missed as the league enters the final stretch. The 24-year old has featured in six of the club’s seven competitive matches played this year.

“On behalf of the entire Orlando Pirates family we wish Thabiso a speedy recovery.

“Meanwhile, in the midst of the disappointing news surrounding Mulenga and Kutumela, there has been some positive news coming out of the Bucs camp.

“Midfielder Mpho Makola has since been cleared to train fully with the rest of the team,” the statement read.
