Musona injury scare

Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter has described the shoulder injury recently sustained by top Zimbabwean striker Knowledge Musona as a huge blow to his side.

Musona sustained the injury last month, when scoring during a Telkom Knockout quarter-final clash with Free State Stars, which the Amakhosi eventually won 4-2 on penalties.

It remained uncertain early this week how long he would need to recover, although some indications were that it could be at least a month. “It is always sad to have one of your most reliable players injured while you are chasing the league championship,” Baxter said.

“It is also bad for Knowledge because he has worked very hard to get himself fit and get to understand the way we play. The worst thing is that this injury came at a time when he had just started firing for us. However, this is a contact sport and such things should always be expected.”

Baxter also feared a long time on the sidelines for Musona, saying: “I know he will be out for a while, but I will have to hear from the doctors on how long that could be. The initial scan showed that there was more damage than we had anticipated.”
