Chiefs Target Sufers Career Threatening Injury On International Duties


One of the top killers of career in the Sports and entertainment industry are accidents and injuries. A fatal injury for a footballer could be the end of his professional career if beyond diagnosis. In this cases, another Bafana Bafana player has fallen victim but it caused no career ending damage.

One of Kaizer Chiefs potential target in the person of the star Bafana Bafana defender Terence Mashego is reportedly injured on international duty. Mashego was told by doctors that he would be transferred in about six weeks after suffering the injury. Full-back Bafana Bafana and Cape Town were forced to withdraw from Bafana's trip to Morocco after suffering a knee injury at camp in June.

The 23-year-old is believed to be on the Chiefs' wish list, although CT City chairman John Komitis broke the relationship. Mashego underwent surgery on June 15, 2022 and is expected to be removed around July 18.

Mashego Interview

When I spoke to you, I had just left the doctor's office. I haven't trained since the reopening and won't be training with my other team-mates until tomorrow (Saturday). I feel a lot better now but that doesn't mean I can kick the ball so I'll be fine. I'm not sure how long it will take to heal, but I've been told a maximum of six weeks from the date of surgery. But I think it will be less.

The Siya crew have a good record that the Kaizer Chiefs have made a bid for the highly regarded Cape Town defender. Terence Mashego is entering his third season at City, having joined the club in 2020 on a three-year contract from TS Galaxy.

Mashego, considered one of South Africa's finest left-backs, has caught the interest of the Chiefs with his impressive displays for the Cape-based side. According to insiders, the Siya team was exclusively able to reveal that the Cape Town outfit used an option in Mashego's contract to shift interest in the country's star player.

I hope he gets well soon and resume football. Kaizer Chiefs could still sign him and help him recover at Amakhosi while he bonds with the team.
