Kaizer Chiefs defender Eric Mathoho wants to remain ‘injury-free’ this season after returning to full fitness.
Over the past few seasons, Mathoho has been plagued by niggling injuries affecting his performance and keeping him out of action on numerous occasions.
However, the 29-year-old looks to have rediscovered his form since returning from injury and is currently one of Amakhosi’s leading goalscorers, with two goals from his first four matches of the 2019-20 season.
‘I just hope that I am injury-free this season because last season I was affected by injuries a lot,’ Mathoho told the media.
‘Much of my form is due to my full fitness. Scoring goals is not something out of the ordinary for me. Even in previous seasons, I used to score goals.’
The 29-year-old says he is delighted to have returned to the national team set-up after he was named in Molefi Ntseki’s 23-man Bafana Bafana squad two weeks ago.
‘I am very happy to be back with the national team. This is something that I have wanted and I told myself that I will do it,’ he added.
Kaizer Chiefs will be hoping to extend their unbeaten run in the Absa Premiership to five games when they welcome Polokwane City to the FNB Stadium on Saturday, with kick-off set for 6pm.
