Gor Mahia defender Shafiq Batambuze has undergone a successful surgery the club has confirmed.
The Ugandan left-back has been out of action since their match against Aigle Noir in the CAF Champions League preliminary round in August.
The player injured himself last season in their CAF Confederations Cup quart final clash against Morocco’s RS Berkane and aggravated it when they returned for league action against Bandari FC.
In a past interview, Batambuze said: “I just went to rest (after the Bandari game) without going for the MRI scan, I healed and came back to play when we were up against Ulinzi Stars and picked another injury.
“I sat out for some time, healed again, and came back this season when we were up against Aigle Noir at Kasarani this after playing in the first leg against the same opponents without any problems. It was becoming too much and decided to go for an MRI scan at which they decided that I needed surgery.”
The player has been seeking help from friends and fans after admitting that Gor was finding it hard to cater for his surgery following the withdrawal of their main sponsors.
