Hunt Confirms Shock Mahlambi News
Chippa United coach Gavin Hunt has confirmed that his new signings Rodney Ramagalela and Phakamani Mahlambi have been ruled out for the remainder of the season.
Both players picked up serious injuries, with Mahlambi specifically understood to have picked up an Achilles injury.
Even though Hunt didn’t give much detail on the nature of injuries he did confirm the time frame for both players, saying they will be out for the whole season.
“Look, I mean I had to try and operate in the free market space which is obviously not the easiest thing in the world to do. And we tried, within a budget obviously we don’t pay,” Hunt told reporters.
“So we had to work in a budget, so we could only get (certain) players. So I got two players in Rodney and Phakamani, and they will only play one game this whole season, they both out for the whole season.
“So you know you can say what you like. I mean our strikers haven’t scored a goal in six, seven, he hasn’t scored a goal.
“So I mean if you saw it tonight, we could have had seven eight ourselves. I mean it was unbelieved. So ja, we’re creating chances, but you got to defend, you have to be defensively better.”
