Free State Stars midfielder Makhehleni Makhaula has issued a sincere apology to Kaizer Chiefs counterpart Joseph Molangoane for the tackle that broke his ankle on Saturday.
The incident occurred in the 55th minute of the MTN8 quarter-final clash at FNB Stadium, where Amakhosi ran out 3-0 victors to reach the last four.
Molangoane is facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines as he prepares to undergo surgery, and Ea Lla Koto have sent the 30-year-old well wishes for a quick and complete recovery.
“The entire Free State Stars family management, technical team, supporter and more especially Makhehleni would like to wish “Tight”, as Molangoane is affectionately known, a very speedy recovery,” read a statement from the Bethlehem club.
Makhaula added: “From my bottom of my heart I did not intent to do and cause any harm to him, therefore I wish him a speedy recovery.”
