Kaizer Chiefs have reported that new signing Keagan Buchanan, as well as the side’s captain Siphiwe Tshabalala, are currently sidelined through injury.
Buchanan was one of the Glamour Boys’ eight new signings announced last month and much is expected from the star following his arrival from Bloemfontein Celtic.
The player, however, has been kept out of action since January with a knee problem and is still not yet ready to return to action.
The nature of Tshabalala’s injury, meanwhile, remains unclear, as both injuries were announced by the club on Twitter.
Player Injuries: Captain Siphiwe Tshabalala and Keagan Buchanan are both recovering from their respective injuries. Speedy recovery #K4L
