Bloemfontein Celtic’s Letlabika says he is still feeling pains on his head and neck 2 weeks after his scary injury

Bloemfontein Celtic defender, Wandisile Letlabika, is on the mend and has indicated that he is still feeling some pain in the head and neck, two weeks after his injury.

Letlabika left the whole football fraternity at pains after a concussion when he collided with the post on 2 March, following his club’s 0-0 draw against Mamelodi Sundowns at Loftus Versfeld Stadium.

The game had to be stopped for 10 minutes by match referee, Daniel Bennett, while the player was receiving treatment.

Sundowns doctors stepped in to join Celtic medics in stabilising the player before sending him to a hospital in Pretoria, where he was discharged on the same day. The 29-year-old from Harrismith was given a two week medical rest by doctors.

The defender has been unfortunate with bad injuries.

He suffered a career threatening knee meniscus last season in the Telkom Knockout final at KwaMashu’s Princess Magogo Stadium against Bidvest Wits on 1 December 2017.

He then missed 30 games before his return to action last year in October, with his first game being against Downs in the TKO Last-16.

Said Letlabika: “I’m getting better with each day. Doctors will let me know after two weeks if I’m good to go. I’m still going to run a few tests before getting back to the pitch.”

The former Sundowns defender, who formed a strong partnership at the back with Alfred Ndengane last season before the latter joined Orlando Pirates in January this year, is looking to be back on the field against Golden Arrows in the Nedbank Cup quarter-finals at Dr Petrus Molemela Stadium on 30 March.

He added: “I hope to be back soon. I want to face my former coach (Steve Komphela) in the Nedbank Cup. I think by then I’ll be fine.”
