“Sundowns have told him that he must first sort out the injury, but the
door is not closed on him because they said he can comeback once the
injury has healed. The injury will take about six weeks for him to heal
“It is not like Sundowns didn’t do their homework before bringing him
over to the club, but they only discovered the injury after a series of
medical tests conducted by the club.
“Sekou had a knee operation when he got here, but it didn’t respond positively and that’s why the team has sent him back,” KickOff.com was told.
The 24-year-old arrived in South Africa on June 25 with an impressive
CV. He has played in Tunisia for one of Africa’s big teams, Esperance,
where he scored 14 goals in 18 games between 2005 and 2006. Between
2006 and 2008, he was playing for Olimpique Beja, also a Tunisian club,
where he scored 11 goals in 11 games.
However, Sundowns will continue to assess Malian international
Souleymane Dembélé who is still in camp, but he has not been offered a
contract as yet.
