Dinamo Bucharest’s South African midfielder May Mahlangu will be out of action for “several months” after suffering a suspected muscle tear.
The Bafana Bafana player scored a superb goal in his side’s 4-1 Romanian Cup win over derby rivals Steaua Bucharest, but was forced off the pitch just 28 minutes into the match due to injury.
"To score in this important match meant a lot,” Mahlangu told reporters, as quoted by Kick Off. “Not only for me, but also for the fans, for the team.
“I have this same problem a few weeks ago. It’s not good, I’m injured and it will take several months for me to recover.”
The goal was Mahlangu’s first for the club, having joined as a free agent on a three-year deal earlier this season.
