The reigning PSL Golden Boot winner has been declared out for the remainder of the campaign.

Bradley Grobler, the reigning PSL Golden Boot winner for SuperSport United, has been ruled out for the season.

The club has been sweating on Grobler's fitness and has now found out how long he will be out.

Grobler will have to undergo surgery to come back to his best form, therefore we won't see him play until next season.


Grobler's attempt to duplicate his goal-scoring form from last season has been thwarted by injuries, and he has only played ten games this season. meaning all eyes are on Peter Shalulile.

This season, Grobler has only scored once, with Peter Shalulile leading the Golden Boot race.

"We're still waiting for the full scans and diagnosis, but the early indications are that he'll need surgery and will be out for a long time," SuperSport United CEO Stan Matthews told Soccer Laduma. "Looking at the season and the way it is, we're not going to rush him back and squeeze him into two or three games this season."

We have to try to ensure that he has a full season next year and is a contribution for us, so for these games, we have to take the position that he needs to complete his rehab and have his operation. We haven't gotten an indication from the surgeon on how quickly he'll be back, but it doesn't look good. We're not going to rush Bradley back, and it's something we have to deal with as a club.

The news is yet another setback for coach Kaitano Tembo and his team, who also lost Teboho Mokoena in January.

Tembo will have to keep slogging away because it is known that the large price paid for Mokoena would not all go into the transfer account.
