Mahlangu injury to be monitored

May Mahlangu is expected to return to training with Bafana Bafana on Monday after injury forced him out of Saturday’s session in Cape Town.

Mahlangu limped out of training on Friday, but having been assessed by the medical staff, will be back on Monday. The squad were given the day off on Sunday.

However, they are keeping a close eye on his injury and should he show a reoccurrence of the problem, it could create a conundrum for coach Gordon Igesund on whether to replace him in his 23-man national team squad.

It could provide a way back into the selection for Orlando Pirates midfielder Sifiso Myeni, who was a surprise exclusion from the original 23-man squad chosen by Igesund.

Meanwhile, Dean Furman has arrived in Cape Town on Sunday, meaning all players are now in camp ahead of the international friendly against Norway on Tuesday.

Furman had been delayed after playing for Oldham Athletic in their FA Cup third round tie against Nottingham Forest on Saturday. Oldham won 3-2 to advance to the fourth round.
