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.”
