No quick return for Gould

Morgan Gould’s return to the game is now being set for February after his Achilles tendon break, Kaizer Chiefs officials said.

Any hopes that the giant centre back might be in line for an earlier return and join the likes of Katlego Mphela, Benni McCarthy and Thulani Serero, who have all come back from serious injury in the last week, has been nixed by his club.

Instead Gould is only due to return once the league season resumes after the African Nations Cup finals in February.

It means he misses out on tournament action as he did the 2010 World Cup, when an ankle problem sidelined him just before the start of the tournament.

He is one of three players on the long term injury list at the log leaders.

Former captain Jimmy Tau has had his orthopaedic boot removed and began a new rehabilitation programme as he recovers from ankle surgery. But he will not play again until next season.

That is also the case with Zimbabwe fullback Jimmy Jambo, whose is out for another 1o months.

Chiefs officials said reserve goalkeeper Arthur Bartman is back in training after a two week lay off with injured ligaments in his left knee.
