Brent set to miss Chippa’s preparations



A hip injury for veteran Brent Carelse is likely to sideline the Chippa United captain through much of their mid-season break, said coach Farouk Abrahams.

The injury adds to a myriad of complaints that have hampered the veteran midfielder, brought in to help the club’s fight to keep their Premier Soccer League status.

Carelse missed the last three matches of the year for the club at Pretoria University and home to both AmaZulu and Mamelodi Sundowns. He pulled a hamstring muscle in the goalless draw with champions Orlando Pirates on December 5.

Carelse has battled with injury since arriving at Chippa from neighbours Ajax Cape Town. Abrahams has described him as the potential pivot of the team but now faces a battle to get him fit.

“It doesn’t look like it will be an easy recovery. It is a problem that might take some time,” he said of the latest injury for the 31-year-old.

Carelse is one of several reinforcements that Chippa United have made in recent months.

But he is likely to sit out most of their mid-season preparations, which start on January 10.

Abrahams has given his players a daily personalised training programme to fulfil during the break to ensure they are back with a decent level of fitness.
