The 20-year-old suffered a dislocated knee during the 2-1 defeat at Mamelodi Sundowns in the final round of Premiership fixtures for 2014, and was immediately ruled out for the remainder of the campaign.

Some good news for the Urban Warriors, though, has seen the shot stopper emerge from surgery unscathed, and he will now begin a lengthy rehabilitation.

A statement from Ajax read: "Young goalkeeper Brandon Petersen has been discharged from hospital, following surgery done to his left knee.

"Petersen clashed with Mamelodi Sundowns striker Anthony Laffor in Ajax Cape Town's 3-1 loss to Sundowns.

"Both players were stretchered off the field after Laffor clattered into Petersen which resulted in a free kick to Ajax, however, no cards were shown by referee Robert Smith.

"We’ve since learnt that Petersen's knee was dislocated, and ligaments were torn. He had the required surgery done on Wednesday, December 24 and was discharged from hospital on Monday, December 29."
