Ntlhe out for four months



South African Kgosi Ntlhe has been ruled out for at least four months, ending any hope he might have had of being part of Bafana Bafana’s 2013 Africa Cup of Nations squad.

The 18-year-old Peterborough United left-back was called into national coach Gordon Igesund’s squad for the matches against Brazil and Mozambique in September, without getting on the park.

Igesund later said Ntlhe was unlikely to play at the Nations Cup, but with injuries a continued problem with the national side, it could be ruled out.

It can now though as Ntlhe will have surgery on his ankle and will be out until the start of April.

It is also a blow for his club chances. Having broken into the Peterborough first team this season, he was looking forward to good campaign to highlight his great potential, which has reportedly piqued the interest of a number of English Premiership clubs.
