Sundowns suffer major injury blow ahead of Al Ahly clash
Sundowns are set to host Al Ahly on Saturday, April 6, at the Lucas Moripe Stadium, in the first leg of the CAF Champions League quarterfinals.
However, the Masandawana suffered a huge injury blow as winger Anthony Laffor will have to miss the game due to a knee injury.
Sundowns manager Pitso Mosimane confirmed that the Liberia international will undergo knee surgery and will probably miss the rest of the season.
“We have a lot of injuries, but Laffor is going for surgery. It’s unbelievable. I don’t know, but he will probably miss the rest of the season,” said Mosimane.
“It is not nice because he always comes up and saves us – he has got that goal in him and we all know about it. But it hasn’t been easy. That knee gets swollen and we want him to play. But he has to manage it because he is not young anymore,”
The 34-year-old played 17 games at club level this season this scoring four times and assisting once. He was also capped 36 times for his country and managed to score on four occasions.
