Zimbabwe international goalkeeper Elvis Chipezeze was on Sunday stretchered off the pitch after suffering a horrific injury during the game against Maritzburg United.
Chipezeze landed awkwardly on his neck just ten minutes into the second half following an aerial collision with Maritzburg’s Judas Moseamedi.
He was taken off on a stretcher in the 58th, strapped with a neck guard and an oxygen mask.
The club later gave an update of the player’s condition on Twitter. The post read:
ELVIS CHIPEZEZE UPDATE
For now, it looks more like a Neck Muscle Sprain. There will be X-Rays done after the match as a precaution to exclude Cervical spine injuries.
