Sundowns seek answers over Vilakazi's injury with Bafana

Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns assistant coach Manqoba Mngqithi says the club are seeking answers to how and why Sibusiso Vilakazi was injured with Bafana Bafana.

Vilakazi suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon during the FIFA international break for the two clashes with Seychelles.

As a result, he has been ruled out for up to six months although the severity of this kind of injury could potentially rule him out for the entirety of 2018/19.

The 28-year-old attacking midfielder has been a key part of Sundowns' squad this season having made seven appearances in all competitions.

Mngqithi told reporters: "We don't know what programme there was at Bafana. Maybe it would help to get such information as to how many times they trained, how long the training sessions were.

"Because that will give us answers as to what happened. At this stage the information we are getting is not really helping much.

"An Achilles can also indicate signs of overload and stress of the muscle or tendon itself. I am giving you journalists an assignment to find out what really happened in camp.

"Better information would be what happened from the time when he finished the match against Wits and the time he joined the camp, how many training sessions. Those are the questions that can be asked."
