Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs fullback Jimmy Jambo has failed to recover from his long standing knee injury and decided on medical advice to quit the game, the club announced on Wednesday.

According to the supersport.com website, a brief statement by Chiefs said: “Left back Jimmy Jambo is planning to hang up his boots and will be making the announcement soon in that regard.”

The 26-year-old Jambo suffered a horror knee injury during the 2012-13 season and after more than a year of recovery has been unable to work his way back to fitness.

The former Zimbabwe international has taken medical advice to quit the game.

Two months ago the club said Jambo was set to return but this has not proven the case during their pre-season preparations.

Jambo suffered the injury in October 2012 in a Telkom Knockout match against Bidvest Wits.

He tore both the anterior cruciate ligament as well as the posterlaterial corner and had immediate surgery.

The injury happened after a tackle from former teammate and fellow Zimbabwe international Tinashe Nengomasha.
