Ahead of the Buccaneers’ clash with Raja Casablanca in a CAF Confederation Cup quarterfinal first-leg encounter at the Orlando Stadium on Sunday, Zinnbauer conceded they were on the back foot.
“Yes, it’s a problem but we will have one of the two players available for the match. However, we will have to see who recovers better from their injury,” Zinnbauer said. “We will have to look and see who is ready. The goalkeeper issue is not an easy one. We have two goalkeepers available and it is not the best situation. We will see what happens prior to the game.”
A few seasons ago, Sundowns raised eyebrows when they registered five top goalkeepers. However, it is now clear that avoiding such a calamity is the reason they have: Denis Onyango, Kennedy Mweene, Ricardo Goss, Reyaad Pieterse and Jody February.
Pirates have been ravaged by injury in other departments too. Key players including Happy Jele, Thembinkosi Lorch and Thabang Monare have also been sidelined by injury.
“We will have to see if the other injured players will be available. We have been waiting for these players [Jele, Lorch and Monare] to recover. I hope some of them will ready,” said Zinnbauer.
“[Terrence] Dzvukamanja, [Bongani] Sam and [Gabadinho] Mhango have been injured. I hope we can have some of them back for the match and make a good starting lineup.”
