Kaizer Chiefs have officially issued a statement after one of their star players was involved in a car accident.
As reported last night by the Siya crew, Chiefs midfielder, Lebogang Manyama was involved in a horrific car accident on Tuesday evening, although Siya sources revealed to Soccer Laduma that the player only sustained minor injuries.
Amakhosi have since released a statement about the incident.
“Kaizer Chiefs attacking midfielder Lebogang Manyama was involved in a car accident on Tuesday afternoon. The player was driving home from training when the incident took place.
“He was rushed to hospital for examinations and x-rays. Doctors treated him for minor injuries to his knee and elbow and he has since been discharged.
“Manyama will be assessed further by the doctors to determine the extent of the injuries and advise when he will be fit to train again,” Chiefs confirmed on their official website.
Now, it remains to be seen whether the player will need some time to recover, or if he will be able to play any part when Chiefs return to action this weekend in the Telkom Knockout competition.
