Cape Town - Orlando Pirates attacking midfielder Sifiso Myeni has returned to full training.

According to the club's official website, the 27-year-old returns to full training following a two-week layoff caused by his nasty fall in Pirates’ match against Mamelodi Sundowns, where he injured his elbow.

Myeni, who has only netted two goals and made one assist this season, completed two friendly matches without experiencing any discomfort or pain in his elbow which has prompted the medical team to declare him ready for selection.

Meanwhile, Happy Jele continues to get treatment for his hip injury he suffered at the beginning of the year.

The lanky defender has started training with the rest of the team however, he is still being monitored by the medical team until further notice.

Striker Letsie Koapeng has about two weeks of rehabilitation before he is considered ready for full training. According to the Bucs medical team, the 24 year old has started light individual training.

Captain, Oupa Manyisa continues his road to recovery with the rehabilitation team and has started light training with minimal contact.

The Bucs talisman will not be rushed back into action and will be allowed to make a full recovery before he straps up.
