Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane revealed that Themba Zwane, Hlompho Kekana, Sibusiso Vilakazi, Denis Onyango, Tiyani Mabunda and Lebohang Maboe are set to report to camp on Monday.
The Brazilians have only acquired the services of Uruguayan striker Mauricio Affonso and Tanzanian striker Habib Kyombo ahead of the 2019-20 season.
However, Mosimane confirmed that new signing Affonso sustained a niggling injury during their pre-season in Botswana and expects him to be back within two weeks.
‘We are okay, but we are just a little bit struggling with injuries now. I mean six players that went to Afcon are not here,’ Mosimane confirmed.
‘You saw Gaston Sirino was running around, Emiliano Tade from Argentina is also injured and we’ve got another South American, Affonso, who we just bought now, he played in Botswana and he’s not here because he got injured.
‘But those are the niggling injuries we are waiting for. I think in two weeks time those guys who are injured will be back, but on Monday we will have the six players that were in Afcon back.’
Mamelodi Sundowns will renew their rivalry with SuperSport United in their first Absa Premiership game of the new season when the two sides square off at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on 3 August with kick off set for 3pm.
