Karuturi Sport defender Benjamin Oketch admits he could be ruled out for the rest of the season with injury.
The defender sustained a knee injury in training just before the second half of the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) kicked off and has been out of action since and the scans on it afterward showed a crack on the right knee cap which required surgery.
The surgery was done successfully on Wednesday 15 August and the doctors estimated his return date to be in two months time, which the defender believes could mean he is out for the rest of the season.
-I am being told that I will be out for two months which in effect means that by the time I return there will be two matches to go – the Sofapaka match and Ulinzi Stars. Those are two tough games at a very important time in the league.
-Considering also that I will be short of match fitness, I don’t fancy the coach would want to gamble at that critical time. So unless a good miracle happens, I could be out for the rest of the season. It is tough on me mentally but there is so little I can do, I just wish my team mates all the best, he told futaa.com.
Oketch is just an addition to a growing injury list in the Flowermen’s camp with Simon Quedeque and John Mwangi also out with long term injuries.
