TAFIC CAPTAIN SUFFERS BROKEN NOSE IN O-O DRAW AGAINST MISCEL
Tafic supporters and other well wishers will be pleased to learn midfielder Buyani Zaka Kgomotso who on Wednesday left the pitch early with a swollen eye and a broken nose in the goalless draw against Miscellaneous is out of hospital.
Zaka who was dazed and incoherent when driven to hospital by a sympathetic Miscellaneous official in the absence of an ambulance was released two hours later after an x-ray scan.
He suffered his scary injury when he fell awkwardly and landed on his face as he tackled an opponent.
When Voice Sport spoke to the injured player after he left the hospital bed he seemed to have recovered his sense of speech but had no idea of what had happened to him
“I do not remember what happened. I just found myself on a hospital bed” was all he could say.
The news of Kgomotso’s discharged from hospital will bring relief to coach Dominic Changwe who though pleased with the precious point away from home for his struggling outfit expressed disappointment at his team’s performance on the day.
“Getting a point away is a good thing but we could have got all the three.
Some of the players did not play according to my instructions.
Some were too fancy and wasteful in front of goal.
We created some chances in each half and had we taken them we would have won the game.
Zaka’s injury makes things worse. Losing a player to injury is always a bad thing for any coach and club” he lamented.
Kgomotso was due to see the doctor yesterday morning and if found fit to travel make his way back to Francistown.
Changwe however had nothing but praise for his backline: “The defense played with discipline. I am proud of them and wish other players could take cue from them” he said
Coach Changwe however is still hopeful that his charges will turn their attitude around and play a better game when they host Mogoditshane Fighters at the Francistown stadium next week.
