Cape Town - SuperSport United coach Kaitano Tembo
has confirmed they will be without the services of captain Dean Furman
for several weeks due to a dislocated shoulder.
Tembo stated that the 30-year-old midfielder is likely to be out of
action for three to four weeks, having missed Sunday's Telkom Knockout
tie against Polokwane City.
Furman joins a long list of Matsatsantsa players currently on the
treatment table, including Fagrie Lakay, Bradley Grobler, Thabo Mnyamane
and Evans Rusike.
"We might miss Dean for the next three to six weeks," Tembo told
journalists after his side's 6-5 penalty shootout victory over Rise and
"If you look at our squad we are a little bit thin at the moment,
especially upfront with Fagrie Lakay, Bradley Grobler, Thabo Mnyamane
and Evans Rusike all injured.
"So this competition (Telkom Knockout) will give us time to try get those players back."
