Mamelodi Sundowns will be without the
services of striker Mauricio Affonso for the rest of the campaign after
he underwent an operation.
The surgery was completed last week in order to address his groin
injury, and he will now be sidelined for three months as he recovers.
"Mauricio did an operation. He will be back after three months. He
will join us for pre-season," head coach Pitso Mosimane said, as quoted
Affonso played a key role for the Brazilians in the Telkom Knockout
triumph in December as he netted two goals for the Chloorkop outfit.
Sundowns were, however, boosted by the return of midfielder Oupa
Manyisa, who is back in light training with the team after the serious
Achilles injury he suffered in October.
