Soweto side Kaizer Chiefs have been dealt a major blow after their star player Samir Nurkovic is now on crutches and will be out for some months. The player shared pictures of his broken leg and he is now on crutches.
Kaizer Chiefs have been dealt a massive blow as star striker Samir Nurkovic will be sidelined for two months due to injury. What makes matters worse for head coach Stuart Baxter is that the Serbian-born player will only return to training in 2022.
"Samir had surgery last week. They found a little tear in the cartilage of the right knee. The surgeon says he could be out between six to eight weeks," Amakhosi physiotherapist David Milner said in a statement.
"They smoothed out the cartilage. Overall, the operation was a success, and he will be reassessed by the surgeon in a week's time.
Samir Nurković is a Serbian football striker who currently plays for Kaizer Chiefs. He has previously played for Pohronie, Slovan Duslo Šaľa, Dunajská Streda and ViOn Zlaté Moravce as well as for Spartak Vráble.
Amakhosi are back in action after the FIFA international break with a home DStv Premiership fixture against Chippa United on Saturday, 16 October.
Chiefs will be feeling the pressure to win their upcoming match and move up the psl league log as they are currently just a few spots above the relegation zone. Chiefs have had two terrible seasons, where last season they scraped through to the MTN8. Although he took the club to the semi-finals of the CAF Champions League, Chiefs fired coach Gavin Hunt with just two games left. They brought back former coach Stuart Baxter, who has not had a good start to the season. Baxter has lost the CAF Champions League final to Al Ahly and they were knocked out of the MTN8 first round by Mamelodi Sundowns.
