Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed that their attacking midfielder, Lebogang Manyama, was injured in a car accident on Tuesday afternoon.
After rumours of the accident began to circulate on social media and news websites, Amakhosi responded with a statement confirming it, although they were still waiting to ascertain the seriousness of his injuries.
“Kaizer Chiefs attacking midfielder Lebogang Manyama was involved in a car accident on Tuesday afternoon. The player was driving home from training when the incident took place,” said the club statement.
“He was rushed to hospital for examinations and x-rays. Doctors treated him for minor injuries to his knee and elbow and he has since been discharged.
“Manyama will be assessed further by the doctors to determine the extent of the injuries and advise when he will be fit to train again.”
Amakhosi will be hoping to have Manyama back soon as they prepare for an important stage of their season. The Glamour Boys will face Black Leopards in the Telkom Knockout on Sunday before the eagerly anticipated Soweto derby against Orlando Pirates on 27 October.
