“Lebogang Manyama is one of the most qualified players in terms of decision making, passing and finishing,” said Middendorp to the media.
“It’s absolutely very disappointing that we still have to wait. But we’ll have to wait because of the muscle issue and he’ll be out for the weekend,” he added.
“Probably, against Free State (Stars) is when he’ll come back and get some minutes,” concluded Middendorp.
Despite their dominance against Golden Arrows in their last league match on Tuesday night, Middendorp was left to lament their poor decisions in the final third.
Amakhosi have three PSL matches remaining against Celtic and Stars before facing Chippa United.
They also have a chance to win the Nedbank Cup as they will meet TS Galaxy in the final on May 18 at Moses Mabhida Stadium.
