Mamelodi Sundowns attacker Anthony Laffor says he will be raring to go once the Premier Soccer League season is able to resume.
The 35-year-old striker had just overcome knee surgery when all
sporting activities were suspended as a result of the coronavirus.
A serial league winner, with SuperSport United and Mamelodi Sundowns,
Laffor went under the knife after a number of seasons playing through
Speaking to SowetanLive, the Liberian said that as a condition of his new contract, he would undergo an operation.
"I was offered a new two-year contract and at the same time we agreed
with the club to go and fix the problem," explained Laffor.
"I had the operation and my rehabilitation went very well. I was back
training with the team just before this coronavirus started, just
working on my fitness to try to catch up.
"It wasn’t easy when I started with the training because my teammates
were running so fast - and a lot! The team was doing so well, and just
getting up to speed in group training wasn’t easy, to be frank with you,
but I think I’ve caught up."
But an ever-confident Laffor added: "I've always had that mindset that people must not forget about me.
"The guys are playing well at the moment, but if I stay fit I'll get a
chance - and when I do so, you know I’m going to make good use of it."
