Another Kaizer Chiefs Player Suffers A Serious Injury.

Kaizer Chiefs Football Club were unable to choose matchday squads from a fully healthy squad at the start of the 2021/2022 season because the majority of their players were absent due to injury at the time. Injury-plagued players such as Lebogang Manyama, Siyabonga Ngezana, Samir Nurkovic, and Dumisani Zuma are just a few of the players that have missed time this season due to illness or injury.

Chiefs head coach Stuart Baxter was obliged to devise a strategy for his club to function without these players, which had a negative impact on their start to the season, since they were inconsistent and fans believed Baxter was not the right man for the job as a result of their absence.

Injuries began to affect fewer players as the season progressed, with only Manyama and Nurkovic the only ones who were suffering and absent due to injury when Chiefs played their final few games of the season in 2021, and alongside the suspended star player Zuma, they were the only ones who were absentees.

Cole Alexander, a former player of the now-defunct Bidvest Wits Football Club and Polokwane City Football Club who joined Chiefs before the start of this season from an Indian club, Odisha Football Club, is said to have suffered a dislocated right shoulder and will be out until the start of the league season in February. Alexander joined Chiefs from an Indian club, Odisha Football Club, before the start of this season.

In addition to Cole, left fullback Sfiso Hlanti is also out with an ACL injury suffered earlier in the season while playing for Swallows Football Club.
