Lebese won’t be back before April



George Lebese has been told he will be out of the game for at least two months after breaking his collar one last week.

He was expected to have surgery but instead been told to rest up for between six to eight weeks.

He suffered the injury under a challenge in the come-from-behind league win over Free State Stars last week.

The earliest he is expected back, is at the start of April, in time for the final six weeks of the season, the clubs has announced.

“It was painful on the day it happened but the pain is no more now. I am resting at home and I will start rehabilitation in the first week of March,” Lebese told his club’s website.

“I am glad that the injury is not on the ankle or knee or something that might affect me in the near future.

“I am disappointed though that I am going to miss out on battling it out with my teammates on the field. I have been watching the games on TV and I’m happy that we have been winning.

“We want to do well as the team this season and watching the game against BidVest Wits in Mpumalanga and Leopards in Polokwane it was good to see the fans rallying behind the team.

Lebese, who turned 24 at the start of this month, has become a more regular starter in his fourth season at the club.
