“The players that have been training their utmost this week will be the players who will go out. I just hope that my other players recover as soon as possible, to give us a headache in terms of selection.

“There are good signs; Ashley is out on the pitch and running a little bit. According to the medical report that I have, he will return at the end of December,” the former Platinum Stars, SuperSport United and AmaZulu tactician added.

GEORGE MALULEKA JOINS SAFPU

In other news, AmaZulu and former Chiefs midfielder George Maluleka is taking a new important path: protecting footballers.

Most of you may have heard of the South African Football Players’ Union (Safpu). The group was previously run by former players, until the Tembisa-born Maluleka signed up last week.

“I’m honoured to be one of the players that are still active to be elected as part of the union. It is not going to be an easy task, but I think the leadership is going to help us to try and rebrand and rebuild the union,” Maluleka said, as per Sowetan.

“We really want to try and make sure we get a lot more players on our side because there is still a little bit of belief that the union is not for players, but we are for the players and we are here to serve and make sure we protect them.

“It is very important that we have a very good relationship with the players to make them understand, and we will try to make things more easier for them, more understanding that when they have situations when it comes to clubs, then they know what to do,” the player known as Mido concluded.
