• Pitso issue update on injured players in camp

    Mamelodi Sundowns coach has issued an update on the fitness of a number of players in the camp ahead of their Nedbank Cup final clash against Bloemfontein Celtic on Saturday.

    The Brazilians are set to lock horns with Celtic at the Orlando Stadium in the final game of the 2019-20 season.

    Sundowns will be hoping the complete their campaign with a treble if they win the Nedbank Cup after clinching the Absa Premiership title last weekend.

    Mosimane has confirmed that the club are monitoring the likes of captain Hlompho Kekana, Gaston Sirino, Ricardo Nascimento, Mosa Lebusa and Andile Jali ahead of the Nedbank Cup final.

    ‘We have a few niggling injures, which is normal. When you come from a battle, you come [out] with wounded soldiers and deep scars,’ Mosimane told the media.

    ‘So we rested a few guys that are not yet back from injury. Sirino has a niggling injury, we don’t know if he’ll make it. Hlompho – we rested him because the guy’s played all the minutes in the bubble.

    ‘Denis is training well, so hopefully he’s okay. Mosa has not started training, probably [soon] you never know. It’s just minor knocks when you come from a game, but nothing big. Oh, Ricardo has a wrist that’s also giving him problems, that’s why he’s been playing with a wrist band. But I don’t know, we should be okay by Saturday.

    ‘AJ, yes, he’s been suffering from that hamstring but he has been training. But the game and training session intensity isn’t the same, but he’s getting better, we’ll hear from the doctors [if he’s available].’
