Mothibantwa out with injury


Celtic manager Khumbulani Konco has confirmed that Mothibantwa will not be part of the team travelling to Johannesburg tonight for their clash against Bidvest Wits.

“Mothibantwa returned from Durban with an injury and after further assessment, the team doctors have given him two weeks off to recover.

“It is a big blow for us to lose a player of Mothibantwa’s calibre for the next few games although we still have other capable players to fill his position.”

Besides Mothibantwa, Phunya Sele Sele still have Siphesihle Ngobese on the injury list, but the good news for Masokolara is that defender Cyrille Mubiala, who suffered a knee injury during the League game against Orlando Pirates last month, is back at training.
