Mamelodi Sundowns have been dealt a major blow with the news that star striker Peter Shalulile has suffered a hamstring injury.

The Namibian international is said to have picked up the injury recently during a training session. 

Sundowns coach Rulani Mokwena will have to do without the services of the Brave Warriors captain.

According to club sources, Shalulile will be out for a few weeks, but he is hopeful that the striker will be back in action soon.

“Peter is out a couple more weeks,” a source said. “He pulled his hamstring, but the damage is not too extensive. We are hopeful that he will be back soon.”

The 29-year-old is not the only player absent due to injury. The South African champions are unsure about the availability of Lucas Ribeiro, Thapelo Maseko, Thapelo Morena, Abubeker Nasir, Siyanda Nyanga, Sipho Mbule and Bathusi Aubaas. 

In Shalulile’s absence, Sundowns will be looking to their attacking players, such as Junior Mendieta,Lesiba Nku, and Siyabonga Mabena, to step up.

Mamelodi Sundowns are scheduled to play their Carling Knockout Cup match against TS Galaxy on October 18.

Thereafter, they jet off to Angola, where they face Girabola giants Petro de Luanda in an African Football League match on Saturday.

Sundowns’ participation in the competition hung in the balance until last week. However, the green light came with the burden of a congested fixture list.
