Mashego could be back soon



Free State Stars utility player Katlego Mashego is just one month away from resuming training, completing a swift recovery from a broken foot suffered in November.

“I’m nearly there, I just need to stick to my rehabilitation program and I should be back in the field in one month’s time,” he told his club’s website (www.freestatestars.co.za).

“It is going to be hard breaking (back) into the team and keeping (up) the same form I was in before I got injured,” he added, “but through hard work and determination anything is possible.”

The 26-year-old Mashego’s broke his left foot in the Telkom Knockout semifinal loss to Bloemfontein Celtic on Sunday.

It was initially suspected that the break to the Free State Stars speedster’s left foot, which happened as he fell awkwardly following a high speed tussle with Lyle Lakay, would leave him sidelined for the rest of the season.

Coach Steve Komphela previously said Mashego would be sorely missed. He has played effectively in several different positions for the club this season.
