Mathare United goalkeeper, Wycliffe Kasaya has been ruled out of action for the next two months.
Kasaya underwent a surgery on his left knee that has restricted him to only five starts this season since he crossed to the Slums in June 2016.
Mathare United coach, Francis Kimanzi will now rely on Levis Opiyo between the sticks for the better part of the remainder of the season.
Kasaya sustained a nonresponsive first-degree meniscus tear on the knee and had to undergo arthroscopy according to Mathare United Physiotherapist, Wycliffe Omom who was quoted on the club’s official website.
“He should be back towards the end of November. He is recuperating well and has started physiotherapy sessions with a view of having him back in training in four to six weeks’ time,” advised Omom who also doubles up as the Harambee Stars team doctor.
Mathare United who will take on Western Stima this weekend, are 15th on the Kenyan Premier League table.
