Mamelodi Sundowns have received a massive boost ahead of their important league clash against Kaizer Chiefs on Tuesday night.
Captain Alje Schut, who was taken to Mbombela Hospital during the Sundowns game away to Mpumalanga Black Aces, has been cleared to start training with the rest of his teammates, and therefore given the green light to face AmaKhosi.
"The results came back showing no sign of concussion and the player (Alje Schut) has been cleared to train with the rest of the team ahead of the Chiefs match," the club confirmed.
Meanwhile, Zimbabwean forward Khama Billiat as well as Bafana midfielder Bongani Zungu have both been cleared of any injuries and they will also join their teammates at training.
"Other good news is that of Khama Billiat and Bongani Zungu, after their respective scans also came back normal which means the dangerous duo should start training," concluded the statement on the Sundowns website.
Meanwhile Schut spoke to Voetbal International about the passing of former South Africa president Nelson Mandela.
"Everybody in Pretoria is talking about it in the streets. For all the South-Africans, Mandela really was the pride of the nation," said Schut.
"His picture hangs at the club on so many places. On the hallway, in the honorary room... My teammates were always talking about Mandela and what he meant for the country. He was also known for his bond with sports, especially with The Springboks, the rugby team."
"Since the news just broke, a lot of things are uncertain at the moment. People are talking about the possibility to pay the last respects to him at the Soccer City Stadium," said Schut.
