According to Soccer Laduma, Howe reveals that he hopes the
forward comes back with confidence.
“It just happens to coincide that Tokelo is back with the tournament
coming up,” said Howe.
“He has been training with us for a while now and we felt
his shoulder was strong enough. We didn’t really want to use him if we didn’t
have to because it’s very early days in his recovery.
“He goes away now and we will miss him, but we certainly
wish him well. Hopefully he will come back full of confidence.”
