Cape Town - Bidvest Wits defender Anthony Gordinho is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines after it was confirmed he has suffered ligament damage to his knee.

The player, the brother of Kaizer Chiefs and Bloemfontein Celtic star Lorenzo Gordinho, revealed on social media that he had torn his Medial Collateral Ligament in his knee and was out indefinitely.

The 22-year-old joined the Clever Boys at the start of the campaign from SuperSport United.

However, has not been able to make a first team place his own under coach Gavin Hunt. 

Nonetheless, he did play a role in the club's recent victory over Pamplemousses in the CAF Champions League as the Students progressed to the first round of the competition. 

With that said, it appears likely the Benoni-born starlet will miss the remainder of the 2017/18 season as he looks to recover from his injury setback.

An MCL tear can often take months to come back from although if the tear on the ligament is less severe, he could make his return to the squad before the season comes to a close in May.
