Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns defender Wayne Arendse could reportedly return from injury within the next three weeks, in time for the CAF Champions League group stage.

An ankle ligament injury and subsequent operation has kept the Cape Town-born defender out since March, and he had to watch from the sidelines as the Brazilians relinquished their domestic title to Bidvest Wits.

But according to SuperSport TV, Pitso Mosimane has stated that he expects the tough-tackling central defender to return with the next three weeks.

While most of their contemporaries are on mid-season break, Sundowns are taking part in the CAF Champions League group phase.

The Pretoria club and defending CAF champions are joint top of Group C along with Esperance, with both clubs having played two matches.

The Tunisians are next in action this Friday, taking on Esperance at the Lucas Moripe Stadium.

The likes of Hlompho Kekana, Khama Billiat and Bangaly Soumaharo all face a race against time to recover from injuries for the games in Atteridgeville.
