Kaizer Chiefs have announced that striker Emmanuel Letlotlo has suffered an injury which will rule him out of action for three weeks.
The 20-year-old forward is believed to have suffered the knock during the Glamour Boys’ disappointing loss to Cape Town City at Cape Town Stadium on Friday.
The loss, Chiefs’ second on the trot following an opening day defeat to Bidvest Wits in the Premiership, condemned the Amakhosi to an early exit from the MTN8.
Reports of the injury came directly from Kaizer Chiefs’ official Twitter account.

Kick-off is set for 19:30.
