The rock-steady defender, who has also starred for top clubs, Dynamos and Highlanders locally, said he went through a number of emotions during the injury, but was well on the path to recovery. He said he could return to action before the end of the year.
“It has been very frustrating for me to watch the rest of the team in action, but there is nothing much one can do in such a situation,” said Sweswe, who joined Wits from Kaizer Chiefs at the beginning of last season and has, just like any other club he has played for, been a regular pillar of strength in the Absa Premiership club’s backline.
The defender, who recently underwent surgery on his knee, has been training separately with the club’s physiotherapist.
“I have been attending the matches and supporting the team whenever they have been playing. The sessions with the physio have been going on well. It is very important not to rush the healing process, especially when you are recovering from a knee injury. I hope that in December I will be able to return to the field and hopefully make a meaningful contribution to the team,” he said. On the team’s performance in this year’s League title race, Sweswe hoped the international break would help rejuvenate the Clever Boys. Wits currently lie seventh on the log standings with eight points after five matches, but Sweswe said the situation could still improve.
“We must definitely be higher up on the log but this is a marathon. The international break has at least given us a chance to recharge our batteries and I am confident in the abilities of our coach,” Sweswe added.Post published in: Football
