Warriors captain Knowledge Musona picked up an injury in his second appearance for new club KAS Eupen at the weekend, in what could be yet another setback for the player.
The striker lasted just 32 minutes in the team’s 1-0 win away to KVRS Waasland Beveren in the Belgian league on Saturday before he was replaced by Jon Bautista.
“Coach Beñat San José was forced to change early because Knowledge Musona had to leave the pitch after 32 minutes due to injuries and was replaced by Jon Bautista,” the club’s official website wrote yesterday.
They did not give the nature and extent of the injury.
The injury would be a huge obstacle to Musona’s progress, who got off to a very promising start at his new home last week when he scored on his debut to secure a draw at home against Sporting Charleroi.
After impressing in his first match, the Smiling Assassin was restored into the starting line-up at the weekend, but could not last the distance.
Injuries have been the major hindrance to Musona’s career this far, and the latest setback would be a huge worry for him.
It is hoped that it’s nothing serious and he can return to playing regular football again soon.
The Zimbabwe skipper joined Eupen this month on loan from fellow Belgian side Anderlecht until the end of the season.
He impressed Eupen during friendly matches in Doha, and the club decided to give him a chance with a short term contract.
The club has an option to buy him permanently at the end of the season.
The injury will also be a huge worry for the Warriors fans, who are desperate to see their team captain playing club football regularly and gain the much-needed match fitness.
