The 30-year-old sustained the injury during his side's Premiership clash with Kaizer Chiefs at the Dobsonville Stadium on March 18.

Mungomeni will undergo surgery this week to repair his injured left knee, meaning he is not likely to return to action until the end of December.

Swallows' team doctor, Ephraim Nematswerani, confirmed the news in his column on the club's official website.

He said: "Moroka Swallows FC utility defender Luvhengo Mungomeni is to undergo surgery on his left knee following a severe injury he sustained during a league match against Kaizer Chiefs on Wednesday 18 March 2015.

"Mungomeni, who has been captaining The Birds in the absence of Lefa Tsutsulupa, will go under the surgeon's knife on Wednesday 25 March 2015, this after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), medial collateral ligament and the meniscus.

"He is expected to be out of action for nine months (until end of December 2015)."
