AmaZulu president Sandile Zungu has been left livid by Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Richard Ofori who has left two of his players injured.

Zungu said Ofori keeps on injuring his players after he left Ramahlwe Mphahlele concussed in the MTN8 final at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday.

As a consequence, Mphahlele has been ruled out of the Carling Black Label Cup semi-final against Mamelodi Sundowns at FNB Stadium this coming weekend.

Mphahlele went to hospital and spent few days there under heavy treatment and his place in starting line-up against Sundowns has since been taken by Veluyeke Zulu.

The former Sundowns captain came together with Ofori when challenging the ball and came out worse, needing a stretcher to be taken off and was replaced by Mbongeni Gumede in the 32nd minute.

Mphahlele, to have been left concussed, he’s the second player from AmaZulu after Lehlohonolo Majoro’s face was also left bruised and the player concussed after also clashing with Ofori when the two sides met last month in the league match at Orlando Stadium.

This has left Zungu infuriated.

“Defintely he [Mphahlele] will not play against Sundowns in the Carling Black label Cup,” said Zungu.

“I mean that Ofori guy has messed up two of my players and same kind of concussion. Concussion is a serious injury, but he won’t play.”

With the MTN8 loss leaving a huge hole in Usuthu camp both mentally and physically, it will take an arm wrestle for them to beat Sundowns in early semi-final at the Calabash on Saturday.
