Be Forward Wanderers striker Ishmael Thindwa is expected to start physiotherapy today at Beit Cure International Hospital in Blantyre.
The striker, who got injured while playing for the Flames against Madagascar at Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe last Saturday, was assessed at the hospital on Wednesday.
The Flames doctor, Levison Mwale who accompanied Thindwa to the hospital, said the injury was not serious as earlier feared.
“The results show that he just stretched his ligaments on the right leg. He will be going to the hospital for physiotherapy for the next three weeks,” Mwale explained.
“He should be back on the field of play in the fourth week of the month to start light training, which is called rehabilitation. I have just advised him to follow the instructions by the hospital so that he should recover fully.”
Thindwa said he was glad that he will likely return to action soon.
“The physiotherapy starts tomorrow (today) which means that I will be fully recovered in the next three weeks, and probably miss three games,” Thindwa said.
“I always set standards when a league kicks off and this year, I want to help my team grab the league title. I am sure I will achieve that because I am also eyeing the Super League Golden Boot Award.”
Wanderers have been hit by injuries in the striking force with Amos Bello, Jabulani Linje, Peter Wadabwa also down.
Wanderers General Secretary, Mike Butao, told The Daily Times last week that they might sign a free agent as a cover to the injured strikers.
The former Epac star joined Wanderers in 2015 after quitting Zimbabwe’s Caps United.
