Kaizer Chiefs head coach Arthur Zwane has confirmed that there are no injuries in his squad after the team returned from their World Cup break on Thursday to start preparing for the continuation of the 2022/2023 DStv Premiership campaign.

The Glamour Boys were given at least a fortnight off and while confirming the return of all players, Zwane has also provided an update regarding two players in his squad but is confident they will be fit soon.

“We welcomed all the guys back on Thursday morning, and they looked sharp. We are very happy with what we saw at training,” Zwane told the club’s media department.

“There are no injuries to report, except for a bout of flu that has attacked Phathutshedzo Nange and Kgaogelo Sekgota. They will receive the necessary treatment from the medical team, and I’m sure they will start training next new week with the team.”

“Njabulo and Kgaogelo came back with the rest of the team. They look sharp and will continue their preparations with the squad for the next encounter. We are also happy Blom has recovered after missing the Carling Black Label Cup match” adds Zwane.

Upon returning to training, Zwane also indicated that Amakhosi are planning a couple of friendlies behind closed doors in preparations for the official games later this month.

“We’ve got a few friendlies lined up and these will help with us with our fitness levels before we play our first competitive match on New Year’s Eve against Arrows,” he added.

“We hope that no one picks up any injuries during the next four weeks, so we are ready for that particular game.”
